Cheerios and the Gluten-Free Mishap
The cereal company General Mills did an entire makeover of their cereal, converting it into gluten-free, but after a “human-error” mistake the company is recalling 1.8 million boxes of Cheerios.
“As president of General Mills’ cereal business, I am embarrassed and truly sorry to announce today that we are recalling boxes of Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios produced on several dates at our Lodi, California facility,” wrote Jim Murphy, president of the Cereal division at General Mills.
Some argue that the president acted in a hurried, timely matter, after receiving 39 customer reports that the cereal had made them sick. But others think this human error could be detrimental to the company in the long-run. As a former well-trust brand they might’ve lost a few costumers on this one.
@InPlainSight promises cake with gluten-free options baked by they campaign baker @Danse. How do we know they will provide this cake without human error? How can this campaign make sure they are not the next General Mills?

Do you think General Mills did the right thing?

@nicolejb celiac are not understanding of these mistskes. For some of us, it is a matter of life and death. Someone's little mistake yesterday cost me more than a night of sleep. Food allergies aren't a joke. I've been rushed to the ER and have actually stopped breathing more than once now. The repercussions for General Mills will be long lasting for the food allergy community. @NikkiLNikkiNik It is General Mills ' s fault. They are the ones claiming their product is free from gluten. That shipping container was not their only problem related to the issue. Their quality control is also questionable, as the methodology used to measure the ppm of gluten in their products is allowing averaging over a given period of time.

Thanks for commenting @JaxomB! I can’t imagine what a PR nightmare (and just awful thing) that it would be if someone died from the cheerios. do you think they will get better because of this accident though? like do you think they learned and will come back more careful?
