    Goodbye! and best wishes in your recovery

    It is possible to get sick from cereal. In 2018 Quaker Oats recalled Capn' Crunch due to a Salmonella outbreak that infected 135 people. In 2010 Kellogg's recalled 28 million boxes of cereal due to 'off-flavor and smell'  and the possibility of symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea.

    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

    Bought a double box of Honey Nut Cheerios here. Three times, about 30 minutes after eating a bowl, I felt immense stomach cramps that lead to feeling nausea and a bout of diarrhea. The cereal was the only consistent thing I was eating each time this happened.... See More Best if used date: 11June 2023 Batch# CW085406 | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps See Less

    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

    #luckycharms #diarrhea #GeneralMills #FDAHELP I ate General Mills King-Size Lucky Charms cereal bar and had stomach pains an hour after lasting all night. I've been in the bathroom with diarrhea 5x before noon. I'm hydrated and in good health. This always happened with the regular cereal... I... See More just missed it and hoped the bars wouldn't make me sick. I was wrong. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Stomach Pain See Less

    I bought some Limited Edition Magic Gems Lucky Charms from here. I have not eaten cereal in years, been sticking to healthier foods yet something bit me in the ass to buy it and I wish I didn’t because a day or two after eating it I... See More started to have soft poop which turned into diarrhea with strong abdominal pain. Didn’t eat it for a few days and got better so I started eating it again to see if it was the cause since it was the ONLY new thing I have been eating and surprise, surprise! It was the cause and I had more diarrhea!!! | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Other, Stomach Pain See Less

    Now, today, Lucky Charms cereal Diarhea turned green and watery. I've eaten it twice since I purchased it on July 28th, 2022, and had same food poisoning both times. If you want the rest of the box, please let me know where to send it, otherwise I... See More will throw the box away and never, ever buy these again. | Symptoms: Other, Diarrhea, Nausea, Cramps See Less

    This has to do with lucky charm company. Next time check dares or just switch cereal. All the grocery stores sell expired stuff

    On symptoms, get almost uncontrollable diarrhea after 2nd bowl. And in a couple hours, at most, of eating it. This happened first time I ate it. Took me a couple... See More of days of eating it until I could attribute it to the cereal. I Stopped eating it and diarrhea stopped. I waited a month or so, and tried to eat it again. Same thing happened. Will not eat anymore. There were 2 boxes of 1 lb. 11.5 Oz. I have not opened the 2nd box and still have the remainder that was in the first box. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less
