In early October the food manufacturer General Mills stated that they in the process of doing a voluntary recall for about 1.8 million boxes of its Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. The recall is due to the possibility of wheat flour exposure to products labeled gluten-free. This can prove to be problematic for individuals that have a gluten intolerance, wheat allergies, or celiac disease. Krisite Foster, a company spokesperson, said, "There have been reports of illness by consumers online. Two complaints of illness have been reported directly to General Mills related to the affected products."
