These General Mills cereals are definitely NOT part of a balanced breakfast!
According to reports, over 1 million boxes of Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios have been recalled!
About 1.8 million boxes of the popular cereals made in a factory in Lodi, California contained wheat even though they were labeled gluten-free — an option the company introduced earlier this year!
The boxes produced in July are reportedly affected and have the plant code “LD” on them.
The tainted oats also feature “better if used by” dates from July 14 to July 17, 2016 in regards to Cheerios, while Honey Nut Cheerios have used by dates from July 12 to July 25, 2016.
Even though the company has to take millions of boxes out of stores, warehouses and homes, experts say that the recall only affects about 1 percent of the breakfast titan!
While the recall won’t make too much of a financial hit, the company is worried about losing trust with customers, since the gluten free option only launched in July!
Customers affected by the recall are able to contact General Mills for a new box or full refund.
Will this make YOU stop eating General Mills cereals?
