The Kellogg food company is closing its St. Paul area distribution center. The move will put more than 200 employees out of work this summer.
In a letter to the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, Kellogg's said it plans to permanently cut 216 jobs at its facility in Vadnais Heights.
The company says it'll eliminate the positions in July and August. Some of the workers are members of the Teamsters union.
Kellogg's, based in Battle Creek, Mich., is best known for breakfast cereals, but it also makes snack foods including Cheez-It crackers, Pringles potato chips and Keebler cookies.
In February, Kellogg's said it would make changes in the way it distributes snacks to stores as part of a major companywide cost cutting effort.
