You may want to check your pantry. The FDA and Kellogg's are recalling four popular cereals because of an uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner of the package.

Only cereal boxes with the letters "KN" following the Better If Used Before Date are included in the recall. Products with a "KM" designation are NOT included in the recall. In addition, no products in Canada are affected.

While the potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive to the uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell and should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea. Kellogg's has also identified the liner and removed them from its distribution and manufacturing facilities.

Anyone with questions or people who would like a replacement may contact the Kellogg Consumer Response Center at 888-801-4163 from 8 am to 8 pm Eastern time.
