They only meet the FDA requirements so if you are sensitive I wouldn't trust them. See here , http://www.cheerios.com/Articles/Gluten Free Cheerios.aspx , they have a voluntary recall and state this. The codex to label something "gluten-free" is up to 20 ppm. The more I have noticed being on the gluten-free diet I am more sensitive.  

Good luck


I can see I'm going to be on this more then my daughters on myspace

For anybody eating cherios with celiac disease, check out what the Canadian Celiac Association said:

  Notice about gluten-free Cheerios General Mills Canada announced last week that five Cheerios flavours sold in Canada will carry a glutenfree claim. Original Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios, Multi-Grain Cheerios, Apple Cinnamon Cheerios and Chocolate Cheerios will be rolled out across the country in August. The Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) held a conference call with representatives of General Mills Canada and General Mills US on August 2nd 2016 to discuss our concerns with the gluten-free label on these products. Recommendation The Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) recommends that people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity DO NOT consume the gluten-free labeled Cheerios products at this time because of concerns about the potential levels of gluten in boxes of these cereals. The CCA is receptive to evaluating any additional information that General Mills is willing to disclose.

  Based on the information provided to date, our scientific advisors are not convinced that the testing procedures described by General Mills are sufficient to detect these contamination “hot spots” in the oats and oat flour or in the boxes of cereal that may contain those contaminated oats. As a result, some boxes of cereal in the market may be safe for people with celiac disease while others contain significant gluten contamination that has not been detected using current testing protocols.

Eat at your own risk. I myself had one hell of a reaction back and August.

When they first came out I was eating all the gluten free cheerios without any problems.  About two months ago I started having flare ups and determined it was probably the cheerios.  The articles and "hot spots" agree with my personal experience...shame too, it was nice to have them but I'm super sensitive and I can't play maybe this box we'll be ok.
