On Friday, June 25, 2010, Kellogg Company implemented a voluntary recall of certain breakfast cereals due to an uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner in the package.

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.

Kellogg indicates that the potential for serious health problems is low, but consumers are advised not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea.

No other Kellogg’s products are part of this recall. The recalled products were distributed nationwide.

“We apologize to our consumers and our customers and are working diligently to ensure that the affected products are rapidly removed from the marketplace,” said David Mackay, president and chief executive officer, Kellogg Company.

For questions or cereal replacements contact the Kellogg Consumer Response Center at 888-801-4163 from 8 am to 8 pm Eastern time.
