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.
