General Mills Recalls 1.8 Million Boxes Of Cereal!
Yesterday, Monday, October 5th, 2015 General Mills announced a recall of 1.8 million boxes of Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereal.
General Mills said in their press release:
“General Mills is voluntarily recalling several days of production of Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios cereal produced at its Lodi, California facility on certain dates in July of this year because of an undeclared allergen – wheat – with potential adverse health effects. Because this recall relates to an undeclared allergen, this is a Class I product recall.
Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios produced on these dates at the company’s Lodi, California facility are being recalled because an isolated incident resulted in wheat flour being inadvertently introduced into the gluten free oat flour system at its Lodi facility. As a result, the products may contain an undeclared allergen – wheat – in products labeled as gluten-free.”
“This voluntary recall includes four days production of original (yellow box) Cheerios, and thirteen days of production ofHoney Nut Cheerios at its Lodi, California facility with the following “BETTER IF USED BY” code dates and the plant code LD which indicates the product was produced at Lodi, California:”
