Kellogg Recalls 28 Million Boxes of Cereal

Kellogg Co. has voluntarily recalled nearly 28 million boxes of Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops and Honey Smacks cereals. The company says the lining in the packages results in an unusual smell and flavor, and could make some people ill.

The company says the risk of illness or health problems is low, but is offering customers a refund while they try to determine what substance in the packaging has caused the problem.

Only products with “KN” following the use-by date are included in the recall.

Other Recalls:

Scope(r) Original Mint Mouthwash Recalled by Procter & Gamble Due to Failure to Meet Child-Resistant Closure Requirement The mouthwash contains ethyl alcohol and certain bottles have malfunctioning child-resistant caps and lack the statement, “This Package for Households Without Young children,” as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. Ethyl alcohol is toxic and can cause serious injury or death if ingested by children.
