    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.

    Evey time I eat Lucky Charms I get a serious case of diarrhea and major stomach cramps. I've tracked this for a few years. Last night March 19, 2023 I had 2 bowls at about 9:30pm and at about 3:00am I had the worst stomach cramps I've... See More ever had. I woke my husband to take me to the ER, that's how bad it was for 3-4 hours. Finally the diarrhea came, passed the cereal and my stomach is feeling much better. I will no longer eat any Lucky Charms. Horrible night! | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps See Less

    I had only eaten fruit, Golden Grahams (dry,no milk), and water and got diarrhea almost immediately after. I thought it was a stomach bug and dismissed it. I took and bag of dry cereal today and water only and the same thing 🤦🏽‍♀️ | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

    Recently I’ve been buying numerous cereals from my childhood as a fun kinda nom down memory lane. Other cereals settled well w me. I had Lucky Charms around 11 AM yesterday. Didn’t feel too bad just lethargic until around 8 PM but I was farting and it... See More was smelling rank. Green hell broke loose on St. Patrick’s Day ‘23 and I’m still awake at 5 AM the next day from these crazy stomach cramps that’s finally letting up now thanks to pepto tums and apple cider vinegar. Did you know GM I had non green crap I had to take care of later today! I learned about trisodium phosphate and other junk in these junk cereals. But lesson learned no more revisiting the past for me. Chances are those things are no longer the same. Thanks for listening and good luck to you. Not the charming kind. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps See Less
