Petroleum Byproduct Sickened Cereal Eaters

CBS News gave an update on the Kellogg's 28 million cereal box recall. It said the sickening odor and taste came from "an excess of chemicals in the liners." CBS didn't state the chemicals involved, however AOL News did. The culprit is:

Methylnaphthalene, a petrochemical

The FDA is investigating the chemical and Kellogg's recall. Who made the paper-backed foil liner with sickening chemicals and where was it manufactured? That question remains unanswered.
