I just wanted to let everyone know about a reaction I had to Quaker Oat Squares, brown sugar flavor.
I've had a peanut and tree nut allergy for 27 years and am extremely cautious with what I eat. I recently tried Quaker Oat Squares Cereal and had a mild reaction (mild reaction for me is hives all over my body). It happened 3 times over the course of 3 days until I pin pointed it down the the Quaker Oat Squares Cereal. This product does not have a disclaimer for nuts whatsoever so I was shocked that it was causing my reaction.
I contacted the company immediately and they said that if it is not disclaimed on the packaged that they can guarantee that it is not in the product.
They were very rude about my alert and told me that maybe I should get my allergies tested again. Which as many of you can understand was very frustrating because I know what I am allergic to.
A few short weeks after I contacted the company they came out with a new Honey Nut flavor.
I believe that they were obviously testing out a new product on the same lines, which cause a contamination to occur.
I will no longer be consuming any Quaker Oat Squares Cereal and would advise others with a simliar allergy to avoid these as well.
