I don’t buy them (though I love Apple Jacks!), but Jake and Jenn have been known to shake the babysitter down in the grocery store from time to time and suddenly there’s a box of Fruit Loops in the cabinet. Now the Kellogg Co. has recalled a few of our favorites, so go check your stash of sugar cereal.

28 million boxes of Fruit Loops, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops and Honey Smacks have been recalled because of a substance in the package liners that puts out an uncharacteristic, “waxy” smell and taste. Hmm… doesn’t sound good at all.

Only products with the letters KN following the “better if used before date” are included in the recall. Below are the UPC numbers of the recalled products. Consumers with questions or recalled products should contact Kellogg at 888-801-4163.
