Breakfast-cereal giant Kellogg (K52.44, -0.4, -0.76%) said it will be voluntarily recalling 28 million boxes of cereal due to an "uncharacteristic off-flavor and smell coming from the liner in the package."
The cereal brands being recalled include Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Froot Loops, and Honey Smacks. The cereals being recalled have the letters "KN" next to the "Better if Used Before Data" are included in the recall, Kellogg said. 
Kellogg said there was low potential for serious health problems related to the consumption of the cereal, but eating it may result in temporary nausea and diarrhea. 
"We apologize to our consumers and our customers and are working diligently to ensure that the affected products are rapidly removed from the marketplace," said David Mackay, president and chief executive officer of Kellogg, in a statement.
Consumers with questions or who want to inquire about a replacement may contact Kellogg at (888) 801-4163 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.
Shares of Kellogg were down 0.3% on Friday at $52.69 a share.
