Kellogg, the world's leading producer of cereal and the parent company of cereals like Corn Flakes, and Frosted Flakes,has initiated a voluntary recall of certain Kellogg's Mini-Wheats cereal packages due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh from a faulty manufacturing part.

The recalled products include Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size. The Kellogg's Mini-Wheats products were available through retailers nationwide.

According to the company, there have been no reports of any injuries associated with these products.

"At Kellogg, our number one priority is the quality and safety of our foods," the company said in a release. "We have a comprehensive metal control program that includes magnets and metal detection devices. We are working with our metal detector supplier to understand why the equipment did not detect the mesh fragments."
