On the company’s website, Kellogg said there have been no reports of injuries associated with the potential problem cited in the recall that totals 36,000 packages.

The recall includes 11.2-ounce packages with UPC code 3800059923 and a better-if-used-before date of Dec. 2, 2013, followed by KNC 105 and a time stamp of 00:13-2:30; 22.4-ounce twin packs with UPC code 3800078356 and better-if-used-before date of Nov. 30, 2013, followed by KNA 105 and a time stamp of 07:00-08:51 or 15:00-17:05; and 37-ounce packages with UPC code 3800020940 and a better-if-used-before date of Nov. 30, followed by KNB 107 and a time stamp of 17:31-20:05.

The packages included in the recall were sold at various U.S. retailers.

The company said consumers affected by the recall should contact Kellogg for a replacement coupon.

Kellogg is still recovering from major recalls that spurred the company to put money into supply-chain improvements. Late last year, Kellogg put out a recall on 2.8 million boxes of its Mini-Wheats cereal due to the possible presence of metal mesh fragments.

Shares of Kellogg were down 13 cents to $59.64 early Thursday.
