    May 10, 2022 - Starting in late 2021 Lucky Charms food poisoning reports started to trend on Now there are reports of over 7,300 sick. and the FDA has initiated an investigation.  We recommend anyone who fell ill after eating Lucky Charms, to report it, and to keep left over product for testing. We will communicate procedures for testing to everyone  who reports their case. 

    Product: Lucky Charms

    I love lucky charms. At least 3 times a week I would have a bowl. After a while I started to notice a pattern of a horrible stomach ache with some nausea and diarrhea that day and into the next morning. It also makes my number twos blue in color. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea See Less

    Ate some lucky charms for breakfast and have been in bed with nausea since. I’ve been having a rumbling stomach and diarrhea as well. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Other See Less

    Food Safety for Business
    i just had a bowl of lucky charms. I have only been getting small stomach aches. | Symptoms: Stomach Pain See Less

    I had Lucky Charms on April 7.. I was sick the next day and for three days after that. Stomach still hasn’t returned to normal yet. I have the box and the rest of the cereal. Not eating anymore of that. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

    I purchased a box of Lucky Charms on 04/04/2022. I rarely every purchase this cereal - maybe once or twice per year.

    On 04/06/2022, I had a large serving of the cereal, consuming about 3 cups around 11AM. I had been snacking on the dry cereal for... See More a bit, mainly the marshmallows. This was the only food I had eaten that day. During the early afternoon of 04/06 (around 3PM), I started feeling very unwell which started with stomach cramps, then nausea. I ate an apple/drank water and tried to lay down. From here, things got much worse - about 10 minutes later, my sickness started with vomiting and diarrhea. I could not keep anything down, including water/ice chips. That night I woke up almost every hour and was sleeping in my bathroom. Taking so much as a sip of water would cause me to vomit.

    The next morning, I woke up feeling miserable and extremely dehydrated. I also had a low-grade fever, presumably from the dehydration (at this point, I was still unable to keep down any liquids). Fever persisted most of the day, subsided with Tylenol then my fever returned in the afternoon. By the evening of 04/07, I was finally able to keep down water and bites of saltine crackers.

    Morning of 04/08 I was feeling better but still had diarrhea/cramping. Was able to keep down some rice in the afternoon. Then continued limiting my due to neutral foods (rice, banana, vegetable broth).

    I remained sick for 3 days, with a fever persistent for ~2 days. Between 04/06 - 04/07, I was basically unable to keep any food or liquids down. I have never felt so sick in my entire life and 100% believe eating lucky charms was to blame. This was worse than any flu I’ve ever had and I will never go near that cereal (or any General Mills cereal for that matter) with a 10 foot pole. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Cramps, Dehydration

    My daughter got violently sick hours after eating Lucky Charms earlier this month. She was bedridden for 4 days due to extreme dehydration. A complaint was filed with the FDA and General Mills. | Symptoms: Vomiting, Dehydration See Less

    My two children, ages 12 and 16, ate Lucky Charms St Patricks Day limited edition for about two weeks. During that time one had diarrhea and the other had diarrhea and vomiting. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less
