Kellogg Co. has struggled to keep Frosted Flakes cereal on store shelves in recent months, recalling the production snags that plagued manufacturers earlier in the pandemic and left some pantry staples hard to find.

The packaged-food maker has also been unable to meet demand for its Morningstar Farms meat alternatives and Corn Flakes cereal, the company said Thursday as it reported quarterly results. The supply challenges for some of Kellogg’s marquee brands come as many retailers say the pandemic-driven pantry-loading trend is beginning to wane.
