  1. Kellogg's says that no injuries have been reported. But, does anyone know what the symptoms would be for someone who swallowed metal fragments?

  2. I don't even think it's worth looking at the upc labels or calling Kellog's just throw out your boxes of mini wheats to be safe. Who has time to get a refund? I don't eat sugar cereal and neither does the family I work for so we are safe.
