The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating Lucky Charms cereal after dozens of customers complained about getting sick after eating it.
The FDA said it has received more than 100 complaints related to Lucky Charms in the past few months. Several hundred people have also posted on food safety website, iwaspoisoned.com, complaining of diarrhea and vomiting after eating Lucky Charms.
General Mills Inc., the company that makes Lucky Charms, said it takes the reports seriously. However, according to NPR, the company said its own investigation has not found any evidence of consumer illness linked to Lucky Charms.
We now have reports of over 3,000 sick citing Lucky Charms, from every state in the US. pic.twitter.com/6h3MaJyjo5— Got Food Poisoning? (@iwaspoisoned) April 15, 2022
