A popular cereal for children has just been recalled from store shelves. According to reports, an estimated 400,000 boxes of the cereal are being impacted.
"Nature's Path Foods is recalling more than 400,000 boxes of its kids' gluten-free cereal because they may contain 'undeclared gluten,' according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration recall notice," wrote the USA Today.
The company announced the recall voluntarily. They mentioned that it has specifically affected the kid cereal line, including boxes of Choco Chimps, Gorilla Munch and Jungle Munch.
"Those who have an allergy to wheat, celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should not consume the affected cereals 'due to potential adverse health effects,' Nature's Path said in the notice," according to reports.
Overall, this is a small number of their cereal products even though it is a major amount. It only represents 5% of their sales for the year-to-date. The boxes are sold across the nation and at Trader Joe's locations.
"The error was isolated to one facility and due to air contamination as a result of incorrect production scheduling," the company said in the notice.
People who have boxes of the affected cereals are being asked to return to their retailer for a refund. For questions, contact Nature’s Path Consumer Services at 1-866-880-7284 or email at ConsumerServices@naturespath.com. Please spread the word about this incident!
