BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (CNN) -

Kellogg's, the parent company of several popular cereals, has issued a voluntary recall of its Mini-Wheats products "due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh," according to information provided by the company. The affected products were sold at retailers nationwide, and there have yet to be any reports of injuries.

"At Kellogg, our number one priority is the quality and safety of our foods. We have a comprehensive metal control program that includes magnets and metal detection devices. We are working with our metal detector supplier to understand why the equipment did not detect the mesh fragments," said Kellogg's in an online statement.

The recalled products include Frosted Mini-Wheats Bite Size (Original) and Mini-Wheats Unfrosted Bite Size with the letters KB, AP or FK before or after the "Best If Used Before" date.

The recalled products are:
