Kellogg Co reported higher quarterly profit on Thursday, helped by strong performance in its Pringles business.
The world's largest cereal maker reported net income of $296 million, or 82 cents per share, for the third quarter, compared with $290 million, or 80 cents per share, a year earlier.
The results included 4 cents per share in integration costs related to the acquisition of Pringles.
The maker of Corn Flakes, Eggo waffles and Keebler cookies recalled some packages of Mini-Wheats in October due to the possible presence of fragments of metal mesh.
It said the recall cost it 6 cents per share, which was offset by better-than-expected performance of Pringles.
Kellogg reaffirmed its outlook for full-year earnings per share of $3.18 to $3.30.
