So it begins. General Mills has issued a recall on certain Cheerios (yellow box) and Honey Nut Cheerios cereal. The cereals that are included in this recall were produced at the Lodi, California location on specific dates. Yellow Box Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios produced on different dates or in different facilities are not affected. So what happened? It seems that wheat flour was added into the gluten-free oat flour system.
Class I recall: a situation in which there is a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a violative product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
Check your pantries for the following “gluten-free” products:
Honey Nut Cheerios
Yellow Box Cheerios
If you have one of the aforementioned boxes of “gluten-free” Cheerios or Honey Nut Cheerios, please contact General Mills at 1-800-775-8370.
Do you eat Gluten-Free Cheerios? Do you have one of the affected boxes? Will you continue to eat Gluten-Free Cheerios if you have been?
