FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- BATTLE CREEK, Mich. -- May 24, 2004 -- Kellogg North America Co. of Battle Creek, Mich., is recalling a limited number of packages of Kellogg's Corn Flakes® -18-ounce cartons because they contain undeclared milk and wheat.

Approximately 6,300 packages of 18 ounce Kellogg's® Corn Flakes with a UPC code of 381200 are affected by this recall . The only cartons being recalled have a Better If Used Before Date of MAR 31 2005 KLB 009 stamped on the top of the package.
These packages were distributed through retail stores in Midwest and Western U.S. This product was not distributed in Canada.
