Cheerios

Bought “original cheerios 20oz” on November 21st for my son. He vomited 3 different times after eating them this last week. I didn’t think much of it because there’s a bug going around anyways. However, once again he vomited this evening and I just now realized he’s... See More only vomited after eating the cheerios and no other time. Threw the bag away! Saw articles dating back to June of this year talking about this, disappointing the company hasn’t issued a recall. Won’t be purchasing again until this issue is addressed. | Symptoms: Vomiting See Less

Two weeks ago I opened a new box of regular, plain original Cheerios purchased from here a week or two before. About 6-8 hours later I experienced intense nausea and chills - no fever. No over the counter meds helped. Couldn't sleep. The diarrhea started not long... See More after the chills. The first night I did vomit a couple of times, although I did so voluntarily because I was so dizzy and nauseous it was the only way to find any relief. The next 5 days I experienced some of the worst diarrhea, nausea, stomach pains, gas, and bowel noises I've ever had. It took me about 2 days to finally eat anything at all and 6 days to finally be able to eat small meals in one sitting. I lost 10lbs in 5 days in all. Not exactly the diet plan I would have chose for myself. I threw the box of Cheerios away while I threw everything else I ate that day out, but I'm quite sure after reading these other reports and knowing it was the only new thing I ate in 24 hours before symptoms, it had to have been the Cheerios. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Chills, Stomach Pain, Gas, Dizziness See Less

The first time I ate the Cheerios with Berries on 11/5/22 I had diarrhea and thought it was just a fluke. I had another bowl on 11/12/2022 and vomited 2 hours later. I knew it had to be the cheerios because I hadn’t eaten anything else and I just used the milk the day before and didn’t get sick. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea See Less
