David, thank you for the follow up. To clarify, the first two letters within the sequence are the key identifiers.

Your package with the KPB designation is not included in the recall.

I purchase this kind of cereal all the time. I just got a call from price chopper saying I had purchased a box that could have the mesh in it. Well I got the call a little too late. My son and father had already finished the box of frosted mini wheats. So hopefully there was nothing in what they ate. Kathy

What about packages that have KBB, KBC, KBA, and KBBA? Are these included in this recall?

What about your Jumbo Club Packs? They contain three boxes of the mini-wheats. The UPC is different for these - 3800022051.

if this is a "voluntary" recall, why are boxes that are still on store shelves being stopped at the register at the time of purchase?

We buy ours in bulk and have gotten rid of the boxes. How do we know, and how do we get reimbursed if we just throw them away to be better safe than sorry?

My family already eat our box of Frosted Mini wheats last month and I recycled the box. (we enjoyed them!)
Have there actually been any cases where metal fragments have been found in the cereal boxes? Are the metal fragments clearly visable?

What is the potental Health Risk of eating these metal fragments? Should my family visit a doctor?

I received a phone call from SAMs club saying I purchased this and it was being recalled. I still have the bags that came in the 70oz box, but no longer have the boxes as we threw them away for space reasons. How do I return these?

I purchased this product before our vacation. I have 4 children and only one who eats this cereal. He developed Salmonella and was hospitalized because it turned bacterial. He is the only one who ate it and was the only one who got sick. Does this have anything to do with the recall?

I sent an email through the contact us link with the 3 1/2 boxes of Mini-Wheats with the UPC code and manufacture code listed above. I haven't heard back from anyone yet. My question was where do we return them? I tried to purchase more cereal at Target last night and when it got to the register, a big DO NOT SELL THIS ITEM came up on their scanner screen. Please advise what to do with the boxes we have. Thanks, Cristin

I checked our boxes and they both have the UPC code 3800031829 but they both have KPB before the Best If Used Before date. Your notice is not very clear since it doesn't indicate whether it is the UPC code or the letter indicator is the key identifier or maybe both. I am assuming that the UPC code is for the overall product batch but the only affected boxes are the ones with KB, AP or FK.

Please confirm.
Thanks

Please explain any medical problems associated with this product. I received the recall phone call from sam's club regarding my variety pack of cereal that I purchased there. My daughter, who already has a serious medical condition, ate the boxes of cereal in question. Do we need to follow up with a physician? Additional information would be greatly appreciated.
