apple jacks cereal recallThe Kellogg Co. has recalled 28 million boxes of some of its most popular cereals because of an "uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell" coming from packaging. The recall includes Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, and Honey Smacks that have been sold around the country.

Here's what you need to know:

  1. Only products with the letters "KN" following the words "better if used before date" are included in the recall.
  2. If you have questions or want a replacement coupon for any cereal you bought, you can call Kellogg at 888-801-4163.
  3. If you are trying to get through on the consumer relations line, when you call it, it will auto-loop through a list of the products being recalled. To bypass this loop, press 9, listen to it fuss at you for not listening to all the prompts, then be ready to provide: The product you have, quantity, your phone number, name, and address.
  4. You should not eat the recalled products or give them to your child because they don't meet quality standards -- your child could experience nausea and diarrhea.
