RECALL: GENERAL MILLS RECALLS SOME CHEERIOS

General Mills said Monday that it will recall an estimated 1.8 million boxes of its Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. This is due to the fact that the cereals may have added wheat into products labeled gluten-free.

“Our Lodi production facility lost rail service for a time and our gluten-free oat flour was being off-loaded from rail cars to trucks for delivery to our facility on the dates in question,” Jim Murphy, president of General Mills’ cereal business, said in a statement on a company blog. “In an isolated incident involving purely human error, wheat flour was inadvertently introduced into our gluten-free oat flour system at Lodi.”
