    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.

    My daughter has been telling me her stomach hurts and has thrown up twice this week. I changed other foods in her diet and nothing made a difference. I ate a bowl of Trix today and feel extremely nauseous and just realized her symptoms might also be from the cereal as well. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain See Less

    I felt nauseous almost immediately after eating Cap’n Crunch. Normally, I eat healthy food, without food additives, so I believe this is related to the food additives found in cereal. | Symptoms: Nausea See Less

    I drank a cup of coffee and ate a bowl of Honey Nut Chex for breakfast around 7:00am on 11/20. Almost 20 minutes after I felt mild stomach discomfort but just figured it was the coffee doing it’s magic. Throughout the rest of the day my stomach... See More problems got progressively worse and I was extremely gassy, I even tried eating other easily digestible food in hopes that my stomach could just figure out what was wrong. By 5pm I was exhausted from the discomfort and all of the belches and flatulence coming from my body and I took a nap hoping I’d wake up fine. The nap lasted till around 9pm and I am writing this from my bathroom floor at 10pm after my body decided to empty its vessel from both ends. I have been projectile vomiting and having explosive diarrhea for over an hour. I am truly heartbroken that I was betrayed by my favorite childhood cereal and extremely disappointed at the effect the Chex brand has had on my body. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Flatulence, Gas, Stomach Pain See Less
