Your gluten-free Cheerios probably have wheat in them

Many gluten-intolerant Americans may be staring into empty breakfast bowls this morning, thanks to a massive recall by industry-dominating brand, General Mills.

Earlier this week, the cereal brand announced that over 1.8 million boxes of gluten-free Honey Nut and Original Cheerios actually contain wheat. “The company said in a press release Monday that issues offloading flour at its facility in Lodi, California may have caused the contamination,” reports CNN Money, noting that the recall affects four days worth of the factory’s production.

This news is a pretty big deal, since General Mills began a major transition to wheat-free products as a way to cater to the growing number of people choosing to forgo gluten (and to ultimately boost sales).

But don’t freak out if this news has you rethinking the way you do breakfast, because we have tons of other much healthier ways to fill your bowl. —Sarah Sarway
