Lucky Charms has been in hot water recently, due to complaints of alleged food poisoning. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently looking into the matter, but the damage may have already been done.
Hundreds of consumers have recently registered complaints of gastrointestinal issues with IWasPoisoned.com after they ate a bowl of Lucky Charms. Though the FDA is investigating, they pointed out that there have only been 41 submissions in their system since 2014 that link to Lucky Charms.
General Mills has not pulled the cereals from shelves, although a spokesperson said in an interview that they take consumer complaints very seriously. After a thorough internal investigation, they “have not found any evidence that these complaints are attributed to our products."
