    Ate a small, dry, bowl of Cheerios around midnight as a snack. Within 15 minutes I was nauseous, at 30 minute mark I was puking violently. Continued for another hour with severe stomach cramps. I then remembered an old tourista trick, vinegar! I took a shot, straight,... See More and all symptoms abated within 1/2 an hour. This is proof positive of food poisoning. I know, I've had it numerous times in Mexico and vinegar saved me every time. Culprit: General Mills Honey Nut Cereal, Giant Size. Batch #: CR091206C, 15 March 2023.

    My son ate a bowl of KiX cereal (General Mills) for breakfast and began to experience stomach pain within an hour of eating, and dizzyness and vomiting a few hours later. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain, Dizziness See Less

    I ate a bowl of toasted oats and within an hour had severe abdominal cramps and extreme diarrhea.

    08/23 update: I have another unopened box of Cheerios but I'm not going to eat them I'm afraid now. It will probably be another week before I fully recover.... See More

    08/25 update: Now I'm having problems moving my bowels and also pain in my abdomen at all this evening very dizzy. I have been advised to go to the hospital but I don't want to put myself subject to where I might catch there. I contacted the General Mills I didn't get a lot of help but they're sending me $20 to replace the product. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps, Stomach Pain

    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

    Unless you're just eating dry cereal I think you might be leaving out an important detail in your post. I used to get the same symptoms every time I used good ol' cows milk. I switched to almond milk and it's been all good ever since. Also I love them marshmallows too but in large enough quantities the dyes in them will make stuff green at the end of the rainbow.

    I ate dry cereal and had the same problem. 1 bowl and not even 30 min later intense cramps and nausea. Something is wrong with this cereal, no one should be getting sick immediately following eating something.

    #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

    My fiancé and I both ate one bowl of Golden Graham’s Retro and became so ill. He ate it first and this happened and I thought it can’t be the cereal, I’ll try it. Wouldn’t you know, the exact same thing happened to me. Bloating, nausea, sharp... See More pains in our intestines. We called General Mills and gave them the lot number. It looks like this is happening to people with this cereal within the last 3 months. | Symptoms: Nausea, Bloating, Stomach Pain See Less

    I was sitting in my room and I ended up with a terrible case of diarrhea. No stomach ache no grumble just immediate case of diarrhea so bad I didnt make it to the bathroom. I started thinking about what I had ate and all I had... See More was a bowl of cheerios. One the night before and one in the afternoon. I have been fine the day and hours before and then immediate diarrhea. I dont know if this is a coincidence or not, but I find it a little odd so many people are having immediate stomach problems after eating cheerios and lucky charms. I was not aware until i was told about people reporting this problem. If it is related, it should be investigated so people are not afraid to eat general mills cereal. Because at this point I am afraid to. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

    Saturday evening, Peanut butter Chex cereal with a banana. Nothing else. Not sure. Went to the ER. They didn’t know why I was ill. Started with abdominal pain due to bloating, nausea, belching, vomited, a few hours later several bouts of watery diarrhea that lasted about 3... See More hours. EDIT: This is the second time I’ve had the same symptoms after eating a General Mills product! | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Bloating, Vomiting, Other See Less
