General Mills president of the cereal division Jim Murphy issued a press release saying that he was “embarrassed” and “truly sorry” to announce the contamination of nearly 150,000 cereal boxes made in his company’s Lodi, California facility.

“We are voluntarily recalling the products made on those dates at our Lodi facility and we ask you to check the ‘better if used by’ code dates on your packages.”

The code dates that may include allergens are as follows.
