Frosted Mini-Wheats recall | Business
Kellogg's has issued a voluntary recall of some of its Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size products due to the possibility of flexible metal mesh fragments in the food.
Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size products with the letters KB, AP or FK before or after the Best If Used Before date are part of the recall. The products vary in size from single-serve bowls to large 70-ounce cartons. Use by dates range from April 1, 2013 to Sept. 21, 2013.

Although the recall information was put out on Monday on the official Frosted Mini-Wheats Facebook page and Kellogg's website, many consumers only became aware of the potential problem on Thursday.
Some are angry and have posted their complaints online. One YouTube user, mdillard13, recorded himself running a rare earth magnet through a plate of the recalled cereal. A fair amount of the product is picked up by the magnet.
