Lucky Charms, Riverside, CA, USA

After eating Lucky Charm brand cereal I became ill. I couldn't hold anything down for 3 days. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting

I haven't ate cereal in a long time and yesterday I had a bowl of Lucky Charms, today I have Sulphur like rotten egg burps, stomach pain and feeling like I need to vomit. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Stomach Pain, Burping See Less

So I have a problem. I am very particular when I eat. Like I find something I really like to eat and suddenly that’s all I crave and I will literally only eat that. Well I recently got that craving for Lucky Charms cereal. Like I literally... See More eat it 3-4 times a day. I know it sounds crazy but when I think about eating something else nothing sounds good. Well as I’ve been on my “Lucky Charms Obsession” (that’s what my sister calls it@ I have noticed that I am having significant abdominal pain, gas, and diarrhea. When I pass gas it smells very foul but almost has a Lucky Charms smell to it. When I have diarrhea it literally is GREEN and it smells foul but also semi-sweet. It smells like Lucky Charms. I’ve had 4 different people tell me that. I also can’t seem to hold it. Like when I eat Lucky Charms and my stomach starts cramping, making weird noises, and getting gassy I have to go to the bathroom immediately. I don’t know what’s going on with Lucky Charms but I can 100% say it is the Lucky Charms causing this because I literally don’t eat any else. Well now I’m fixing to have to because this hurts so much and is so uncomfortable. I just want to know what is going on because I haven’t seen or heard of a recall and I know several people have reported this. I figured since General Mills has done anything about it or even acknowledged there could be a problem with it to the public that I might as well go ahead and tell my story too. Hopefully someone will do something because I honestly don’t want anyone to feel as horrible as I do after eating Lucky Charms. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Gas, Cramps, Stomach Pain, Green Stool See Less

Consumers also are advised not to consume any products that are beyond their Best By Date. The products are packed in various formats under many different brand names, which are listed below.

Although Clostridium botulinum has not been found in products, consumers are warned not to consume any of the recalled products even if they do not look or smell spoiled. The list of recalled products does not include products intended for infants (i.e., under the age of one). While infection related to Cronobacter sakazakii is rare, the common symptoms of illness could include fever, vomiting and urinary tract infection. However, vulnerable and immunocompromised populations may be more susceptible to infection.  

Clostridium botulinum may cause a severe form of food poisoning. It can begin from six hours to two weeks after eating food that contains the toxin. Symptoms may include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and muscle weakness. Botulism poisoning can cause respiratory paralysis, resulting in death, unless assistance with breathing (mechanical ventilation) is provided. Root cause analysis indicates that the products did not meet commercial sterility specifications.

In case you experienced Cronobacter or Clostridium symptoms, report it now. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
