Kellogg’s® Corn Pops, Honey Smacks, Froot Loops and Apple Jacks cereals – select packages recalled

Kellogg is issuing a voluntarily recall of 28 million boxes of select packages of Kellogg’s® Corn Pops®, Honey Smacks®, Froot Loops® and Apple Jacks® cereals because of an “uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell” coming from packaging. Consumers should not eat the recalled products because they do not meet quality standards. Kellogg has identified a substance in the package liners that can produce an uncharacteristic waxy-like off taste and smell and cause physical symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea.
