Cereal recall: Nature’s Path recalls EnviroKidz’s cereal boxes


Recall alert! Got Nature’s Path cereal boxes in your pantry? You may have to throw them out!

Food recalls are always scary — and have you noticed there has been a lot of them happening lately? What gives? The latest food product being recalled are Nature’s Path cereal boxes, specifically the company’s EnviroKidz cereal. Yes, this includes their yummy Choco Chimps and Jungle Munch boxes! Sorry to disappoint ya, kids, but those boxes gotta go! Well, it may not be bad news for you…

USA Today broke the news, over 400,000 boxes of Nature’s Path gluten-free cereal for kids may contain an “undeclared gluten,” according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration recall notice.

So, basically, if you’re okay with gluten and only snack on EnviroKidz cereal because of their yummy taste, you should be okay. If you’ve banned all gluten from your life though, get rid of them.
