Wax Like Taste and Smell Causes Kelogg Cereal Recall

"We have identified a substance in the package liners that can produce an uncharacteristic waxy-like off taste and smell," according to Kellogg spokeswoman J. Adaire Putnam.

According to the Kellogg web site that "while the potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive" to the odd odors and "should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea."

Kellogg Apologizes to Consumers

"We apologize to our consumers and our customers and are working diligently to ensure that the affected products are rapidly removed from the marketplace," says David Mackay, president and chief executive officer of Kellog.

List of Recalled Cereals

Kellog says only products with the letters "KN" following the words "better if used before date" are included in the recall. Kellog says consumers who have questions or want a replacement for any cereal bought can call Kellogg at 888-801-4163.
