Do I have to worry about the maple and brown sugar kind?

One would do well to avoid sugar-added cereals, I guess one could find contaminants in shredded wheat or corn flakes as easily. Oh well, there is still ham and eggs.

This is useful information. I just went through a box of these. Fortunately, there weren't any fragments in them.
