    As an American who grew up eating Cheerio’s, I didn’t think much about the occasional honey nut one that ended up in my regular Cheerio’s. When America got the Peanut Butter Cheerio’s, I stopped eating Cheerio’s. While the occasional does not belong in this box variety to pop up was rare, it was still there and I ate them. It got me thinking if a Honey Nut ends up appearing on occasion, what about a Peanut Butter? It’s not a risk I was willing to take as PA adult.

    Dear Elizabeth,
    I was interested to find your site today. I was reading your post about Cheerio cross contamination and just wanted to share that a couple of weeks ago, my egg, pea, lentil, peanut, tree nut and sesame allergic son was eating a bowl of plain cheerios and immediately broke out in an obvious allergic rash on his face. It’s nice to see some information online regarding their production and labeling practices. We’re becoming more and more aware of cross contamination and examples of poor food labeling. My son’s recent reaction really does seem to back up suspicions about the manufacturing processes for Cheerios. I’m about to contact them to let them know that this happened. Thanks for putting information out there for concerned parents.
