General Mills Recalls 1.8 Million Boxes of Cheerios

General Mills has recently recalled about 1.8 million boxes of gluten-free Cheerios boxes due to the possible presence of wheat. Both Original and Honey Nut flavors are at risk. The "undeclared allergen" could seriously affect those with wheat allergies, celiac disease, or gluten intolerance.
