Kellogg recalls Mini-Wheats products due to metal found in packaging

OTTAWA – Kellogg Canada has recalled one of its most popular brands of cereal due to pieces of metal being found in the packaging.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the company is recalling most sizes of Mini-Wheats brown sugar and original frosted cereal sold nationwide.

The country’s food safety watchdog says pieces of potentially harmful metal were found in the cereal.

The products have best-before dates between April 1 and Jul. 29, 2013.

The CFIA issued the recall with little fanfare on Oct. 7 and has not reported any injuries since.

Kellogg Canada could not immediately be reached for comment.
