    I ate two bowls of General Mills Lucky Charms last night (Thursday, March 16, 2023) and am experiencing severe diarrhea Friday morning, March 17th. I did not know about the possible side effects until I looked it up online and that’s how I learned about your website.... See More I will not be buying anymore Lucky Charms, even though I’ve always been a fan of them. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

    We've been holding out on getting Lucky Charms for a while since there were so many cases of people getting sick. We thought we'd give them a try again since nothing was found by the FDA. That was a mistake. Our son woke up in the middle... See More of the night with bad stomach cramps and diarrhea. We will never buy Lucky Charms or a General Mills cereal again. #LuckyCharms #GeneralMills | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps See Less

    Cheerios made me and my dog extremely ill. Both of us woke up in the middle of the night with diarrhea within hours after eating Cheerios from the same bag. Nobody else in the house was sick. I ended up in the emergency room all afternoon getting... See More tested. Bed ridden. Severe stomach pains still and burping “cheerios” taste two days later. General Mills needs to be investigated. Will never eat cereal from this company again. Update: still sick 2 days later. My poor dog too. I think it’s Roundup weed killer (Glyphosate). Literal poison. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Stomach Pain, Burping See Less

    Over the past couple of years, I have had issues with cereal specifically any cereal from general mills. most recently I tried adding a fiber supplement to my diet and have over been feeling better. I thought with that I would try breakfast cereal again and bought... See More a Family size box of Honey nut Cheerios. this morning 2/23/2023 I had a bowl for breakfast not a big serving but maybe 2 cups of actual cereal, with some lactose free milk. then maybe 4-5 hours later I was feeling really bloated and gassy, and an hour after that started I went to the bathroom and let out a large amount of Diarrhea, slightly yellowish with floating stool. This is completely abnormal to the bowel movements I've had through the last month and I really can only pin it to the cereal itself! I'm not sure what happened I use to be able to eat the cereal as a kid no problem but now its like eating a bowl of laxatives, very sad. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Gas, Bloating See Less

    I would firstly like to state that I had no knowledge of there ever being an possible issue with Lucky Charms prior to this morning. My seven year old son rarely eats cereal for breakfast, however this morning he ate Lucky Charms. He has complained to me... See More that his stomach hurts and feels swirly (which is his way of describing nausea) every time he eats this cereal. I have disregarded it in the past but thought this morning due to his consistent complaints with this specific product that I should look into it. This complaint has been consistent for many months now. I typed into Google “my son feels sick after eating Lucky Charms”. I was shocked to see that this is not an isolated incident by any means and that apparently there has been an investigation that concluded Lucky Charms to be deemed safe and the reports unfounded. I find this very concerning. As I stated earlier, I had no knowledge of any prior complaints regarding General Mills Lucky Charms cereal. I find it extremely odd that my child who never complains and rarely eats cereal has only ever complained after eating Lucky Charms specifically and that he is not the only one by any means. There is clearly some sort of issue going on here that the FDA has apparently looked into and chosen to brush off and sweep under the rug. Very disappointing. Further investigation is required!! | Symptoms: Nausea, Stomach Pain See Less

    My daughter gets intense stomach pains whenever she eats General Mills cereals at her grandparent's house. We've experienced this with both Honey Nut Cheerios and Golden Grahams. These symptoms don't occur when she eats Trader Joe's Honey O's or other brands with similar cereals. | Symptoms: Stomach Pain See Less

    on December 23 2022 my wife bought a bag of General Mills Lucky Charms cereal the version in the bag not the box and i ate a bowl of it for breakfast every morning and about half way through the bag i started to feel ill after... See More eating a bowl of it my stomach began to hurt and feel strange then i began feeling like something was bubbling its way back up my throat so i ran for the toilet the moment i got to the toilet i started gagging and then i started throwing up something that was colorful and tasted like the lucky charms i had just ate i puked up the whole bowl i had ate after that i was too scared to eat any more of it thinking something in me didn't agree with the cereal, then a week later on December 30 2023 she bought a bag of General Mills Reese's Puffs cereal which i started eating a bowl for breakfast every morning cause i was still to scared to eat the lucky charms cereal by January 10 2023, 30 minutes after finishing a good bowl of the Reese's Puffs cereal i started to feel that same feeling again like the one i felt after eating the Lucky Charms cereal thinking maybe if i just sit here a minute or 2 maybe it will go away then a minute later i felt the same something bubbling its way up my throat feeling so i ran to the toilet passing by my son running to the toilet once again the moment i got to it all i can say is a scene from the Exorcist movie i projectile puking out Reese's Puffs cereal all in the toilet the whole bowl of Reese's Puffs i ate and now its January the 12 2023 and everything i eat i end up throwing it back up and another symptom has has been happening i have loads of gas (i fart a lot. now Lucky Charms and Reese's Puffs are both my favorite cereals my kids love them too lucky my kids didn't get a chance to eat some before I got sick from the cereal cause they were going to school and eating there each of those times but i have something to say to General Mills cereal company "you made me a loyal costumer terrified to eat anymore of your cereal brands... Please find the cause for these illnesses and fix it... PLEASE!... until the problem is solved me and my family will be only buying Malt O Meal brand cereals from now on" thank you all for listening | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain, Gas See Less

    I ate this lucky charms cereal a week ago and I got very sick with stomach cramps, nausea and diarrhea. I thought I had the flu. But then I ate the same cereal again tonight and now I have the same symptoms. I will never buy General Mills cereal again. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps See Less
