Saturday, the FDA said it has received more than 100 complaints related to Lucky Charms so far this year.
The agency said in a statement: “The FDA takes seriously any reports that food may be adulterated that could also cause illness or injury.”
Hundreds of people have also posted on a food safety website, iwaspoisoned.com, complaining of feelings of nausea, diarrhea and vomiting after eating Lucky Charms.
General Mills Inc., the Minneapolis-based company that makes Lucky Charms, Cheerios and other cereals, said it is aware of those reports and takes them seriously. But the company said its own investigation had not found any evidence of consumer illness linked to Lucky Charms.
General Mills said it encourages consumers to share concerns with the company directly.
