Cheerios has launched an aggressive campaign touting their advanced process that removes gluten from their products. The problem is it doesn’t, and dozens of people with gluten allergies and the autoimmune disorder Celiac have already become ill after eating this new, ostensibly safe, incarnation of the popular breakfast cereal.

Some people avoid gluten to lose weight or to follow a diet that has removed this particular plant protein. For these people, accidental ingestion of gluten is unfortunate, but not dangerous. Others, however, can experience serious reactions to gluten and face increased risks for other illnesses and diseases when it is consumed. These people can suffer greatly when a company aggressively markets a contaminated product as “gluten free.”
General Mills has been marketing Cheerios as gluten free through a range of advertisements. If you have been misled by these ads or ads for similar products only to become sick, you may be entitled to compensation.
