Cheerios just spent bucco cash on a commercial claiming they remove the wheat from their cereal. Well, not so fast. General Mills just had to recall 1.8 million boxes because wheat got past the machines.

If you have Celiac, or know someone who does, stay away from the cereal for now.

“Please know we’ll be working even harder to earn back your trust,” a rep said. “We sincerely apologize to the gluten-free community and to anyone who may have been impacted.”

If you had a reaction to Cheerios or have questions, call 1-800-775-8370. If you have a lot of free time, I suggest calling just to let them know it’s ridiculous that 2 million boxes got past quality control. I mean… 2,000,000. Really?

Pro tip: if you watch the commercial, you can see that even the animation shows the machine failing to filter a few pieces of gluten. Foreshadowing! Someone knew the truth and got ignored.
