LODI, Calif. – If you have a box of gluten-free Cheerios in your pantry, you may want to check to see if it has been recalled.

The recall affects the gluten-free varieties of Honey Nut Cheerios and classic Cheerios.
General Mills said it was an isolated incident and it is working to implement a solution to ensure that it does not happen again.
