Cheerios

I bought a box of Honey Nut Cheerios. I was having extremely painful bowel problems every time I ate a bowl. I know it was the Cheerios because I would have a bowl about 2 weeks apart and I only have bowel problems after I ate it.... See More I was eating it with almond milk. Even when I ate it dry as a snack I still had problems | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Stomach Pain See Less


I bought a box of very berry cheerios to try. Have eaten it twice and been extremely sick immediately after both times. Very Nauseated bloodshot eyes and vomiting. Also I am breastfeeding my 3 month old so I am concerned reading just now that cheerios has over 300 reports against it. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting See Less

I had some Honey Nut Cheerios earlier today, and a couple of hours later, I still have horrible nausea, vomiting, and stomach cramps. I've had food poisoning before, and this is just like it was last time. It just feels like there is poison in my stomach,... See More and any food or drink I try to down comes back up. I had a different box of cheerios last week, and I was fine, but this new box has caused this. I'm the only one who has had any, and I'm the only one sick. Also, I don't eat Cheerios with milk, I eat them dry. I've already submitted a report to the FDA since they are investigating General Mills. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Cramps See Less

I have seen three other reports from general Mills cereal in Florida recently. That can't be a coincidence.

I also got sick after eating Cheerios. (I dont use milk, I eat them dry). Fiance did not have any and is fine. My box also has the CW so manufactured at the same place but different expiration date. I filed a report with the FDA.

I’m on a STRICT diet due to my gluten, dairy and egg intolerances among a plethora of other allergies. The ONLY thing I’ve changed, in months, was adding in ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’ as a snack. The next day I suddenly got nauseous, chills, stomach aches, and rectal... See More pain then diarrhea. I kept eating the Cheerios to make sure it wasn’t something else. By day 4 I had to stop. Once I’ve stopped my stomach and bowel movements are slowly going back to normal. General Mills claims it’s gluten free… but there is no “certified gluten free” certification logo on the box. So I don’t know how accurate that labeling really is. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Chills, Stomach Pain See Less

Bought a family sized box of Cheerios Oat Crunch Almond last week. On Monday, I ate a bowlful with regular milk (fresh milk, just purchased). About two hours later, severe stomach cramps, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea all day. I don't eat cereal often because of the sugar content,... See More so I didn't eat anymore of the cereal for a few days. Until today. Within an hour or so, the diarrhea, nausea, and dizziness returned. Today is Sept. 23, 2022. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps, Dizziness See Less

Purchased a mega sized box of honey nut cheerios ate 1 bowl and had severe cramping and diarrhea. Thought it was the milk or something else I ate that day. Had a second bowl a couple days later and experienced the exact same symptoms. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea See Less
