I have all of the exact same numbers, except the expiration date differs. Strange though...just before I heard about the recall of this cereal...I had just finished off a box of it and broke a piece of my tooth on some kind of seed...or whatever it was in my bowl of cereal. I am not quite sure what it is....but I always buy this particular cereal, as it is my favorite....and never bit into anything like this.
