Dora Cinnamon Stars cereal
Last night my almost-4-year-old son vomited suddenly and profusely about 30 minutes after eating this cereal. He was totally fine before and after; that is, he doesn't have a virus.
It was the first time we'd tried that particular cereal, and everything else he ate yesterday were things he's eaten before without incident. I read the label thoroughly before giving it to him and there were no allergy warnings. He's allergic to peanuts and eggs only.
I will call General Mills today, but just wondering if anyone has any experience with this. Vomiting is his typical reaction to consumption of eggs. (It's happened about 4 times -- twice before we knew he was allergic.) His reaction to the few accidental exposures to peanuts has been facial hives and itching, which was controled with Benadryl -- never vomiting.
The allergist performed a scratch test of 80 items on him when he was 2. Could she have missed something - say, cinnamon?
Here are the list of ingredients of this cereal: whole grain corn, corn meal, sugar, corn bran, modified corn starch, canola and/or rice bran oil, corn syrup, salt, calcium carbonate, cinnamon, dicalcium phosphate, trisodium phosphate, baking soda, then a bunch of added vitamins and minerals.
