BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (BATTLE CREEK ENQUIRER) -Kellogg Co. has begun a voluntary recall of some bite-size Mini-Wheats cereal.

The company says fragments of metal mesh from a broken part used in the manufacturing process may have gotten into the cereal.

Products affected are Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size Original and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size with the letters KB, AP or FK before or after the "Best If Used Before" date.

Kellogg's said anyone who has cereal that's part of the recall should contact the company at 800-962-1413 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. weekdays or go tokelloggs.com and click on "contact us."

The company said it had consulted with Dr. David Acheson, an internal medicine physician and former chief medical officer at the FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. It said Acheson rated the likelihood of these fragments making their way into the food is low and said "the chances that any affected food will cause injury is low."

Kellogg said in a news release Wednesday that it expected the recall to cost between $20 million and $30 million.

The company said these specific products are being recalled:
