Maybe Time To Return Your Mislabeled Cheerios Box
This is quite coincidental. I just purchased Cheerios this past week. I was thinking to myself as I read the label, "Wow, I didn't know they were gluten free". Well, it turns out they might have been mislabeled.
I've been loosely following a gluten free diet for the past 3 years or so, but then again I cheat a lot, so this isn't a big deal for me, but for folks with celiac disease, this could mean something serious.
According to Newser.com, General Mills is recalling 1.8 million boxes of both Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. They were produced in Lodi California, and I guess wheat flour was used accidentally.
Although they say the recall only affects 1%, you are taking a chance that your box might be one of them.
There is a code to look for on the box. Watch for the "LD". For regular Cheerios, look for a USE BY date between 7/14-7/17 2016 . For Honey Nut it's 7/12-/25.
Just thought I'd spread the word. Mislabeled product ….hmmmm. I wonder if they're owned by Volkswagen?
