General Mills is voluntarily recalling 1.8 million boxes of Cheerios that were labeled as gluten-free but actually may contain wheat.
The company says all the regular and Honey Nut Cheerios produced in one of its locations over several days were affected. A list of the products affected is available on the Cheerios website.
The company blames the issue on a mix-up at one of its production facilities. It says wheat flour was accidentally mixed with gluten-free oat flour during transportation. (Video via General Mills)
