General Mills recalls some Cinnamon Toast Crunch products


General Mills is voluntarily recalling nearly 170 cases of single-serve reduced-sugar Cinnamon Toast Crunch bowl packs because of the possible risk of salmonella, contamination, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The Golden Valley-based packaged-food maker said no illnesses have been associated with the recall being taken as a precaution.

The Associated Press says the affected product was sold to restaurants and food-service customers with "Better if Used By" dates of Aug. 31 and Sept. 2.

No other varieties or sizes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch or other General Mills products are involved, according to a company news release.

Anyone with the recalled cereal should throw it away and contact General Mills at 1-800-328-1144 for a replacement.

General Mills reported in March net income of $398.4 million in the third-quarter, up 2 percent from $391.5 million a year ago.
