FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 3, 2013 - General Mills announced today a voluntary Class I recall of a small quantity of single-serve reduced-sugar Cinnamon Toast Crunch bowlpak sold in foodservice establishments.

This action is being taken as a precaution because the company was notified by an ingredient supplier that it had recalled an ingredient due to the possible presence of salmonella. No illnesses have been associated with this finding.

The recall affects approximately 168 cases of product. No other varieties or sizes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch are involved. No other General Mills products are impacted. This voluntary recall includes single-serve reduced-sugar Cinnamon Toast Crunch bowlpaks with the following “Better if Used By” dates printed on the package: 

31AUG2013
02SEP2013

Foodservice operators or consumers who have this product are urged to dispose of the product and contact General Mills toll-free at 1-800-328-1144 for a replacement.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, particularly in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and/or abdominal pain.
