    Kellogg's Recalls 28 Million Boxes Of Cereal Over Stinky Box Liners - The Consumerist

    A few weeks after getting slapped on the wrist by the FTC for the second time in a year, the Kellogg Company's cereal division has another embarrassment on its hands -- a recall of 28 million boxes of Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops and Honey Smacks due to "an uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner in the package."

    According to a release on the Kellogg's site, "Only products with the letters "KN" following the Better If Used Before Date are included in the recall. Products with a "KM" designation are NOT included in the recall. In addition, no products in Canada are affected."

    Below are details on the recalled cereals:
    Kellogg's Apple Jacks
    * UPC 3800039136 1: 17 ounce package with Better if Used Before Dates between APR 10 2011 and JUN 22 2011
    * UPC 3800039132 3: 8.7 ounce packages with Better if Used Before Dates between JUN 03 2011 and JUN 22 2011

    Kellogg's Corn Pops
    * UPC 3800039109 5: 12.5 ounce packages with Better if Used Before Dates between MAR 26 2011 and JUN 22 2011
    * UPC 3800039111 8: 17.2 ounce packages with Better if Used Before Dates between MAR 26 2011 and JUN 22 2011
    * UPC 3800039116 3: 9.2 ounce packages with Better if Used Before Dates between APR 05 2011 and JUN 22 2011

    Kellogg's Froot Loops
    * UPC 3800039118 7: 12.2 ounce packages with Better if Used Before Dates between MAR 26 2011 and JUN 22 2011
    * UPC 3800039120 0: 17 ounce packages with Better if Used Before Dates between MAR 26 2011 and JUN 22 2011
    * UPC 3800039125 5: 8.7 ounce packages with Better if Used Before Dates between MAR 26 2011 and JUN 22 2011

    Kellogg's Honey Smacks
    * UPC 3800039103 3: 15.3 ounce packages with Better if Used Before Dates between MAR 26 2011 and JUN 22 2011

    Kellogg's says that while the "potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive to the uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell and should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea."

    Those with questions or who would like a replacement may contact the Kellogg Consumer Response Center at 888-801-4163 from 8 am to 8 pm Eastern time.

    Sounds more like a health department issue.

    If the boxes were a health risk, could they be considered 'cereal killers'?

    Usually the boxes taste better than the cereal anyway.
    Give me a good bowl of oatmeal or Cream Of Rice any day.
    If you're feeding your kids most boxed kiddie cereals - you might as well just give them a candy bar and a Coke for breakfast in the morning.
    And...there is more saturated fat in a glass of milk than in a Snickers bar BTW.

    ha ha!

    I'm just a big kid at heart and eat cereal everyday, everything from Frosted Flakes to Bran Flakes. Just skip the High Fructose Corn Syrup.
