Hi everyone,

Has anyone had problems with Frosted Flakes?

My daughter (PA, Egg allergy) had a reaction (throat felt like it was closing she said) to Frosted Flakes this morning. Benadryl helped, thankfully.

She ate them dry, no milk, the first thing she ate this morning. She did have some apple juice but it was an open bottle she was drinking from all evening yesterday with no problem.

I called Kellogg and they insist they would label if there was any chance of cross contamination.

So off we go to the allergist for testing. I'm afraid we have a new allergy here. Corn maybe?

Hi so sorry about the reaction.
My dd reacted to them as well, took one bite and started vomiting right back into the cereal bowl. I had just told my dh not to give them to her and she took a bite out of his bowl at the same time.
I really trust kelloggs but something is up with the frosted flakes.
My dd eats the corn pops, rice krispies and crispix not problem.
Hope all is well.
Take Care

Hi, thanks for the responses.
She needed a second dose of benadryl but is fine now... no third dose needed thankfully. I will be watching her closely tonight though!

Frosted Flakes had a contamination recall several years ago.
I happened to have a box of the lot that was contaminated and had not eaten any yet.
Have never bought any cereal ever since.
Here is the recall info...I did go back and do a search and find it.
