New Peanut Butter Cheerios Worry Parents of Allergic Kids:
Hold the presses ~ I'm not worried. Thank you to Cheerios for being clear with allergen warnings, labeling and safety information. As an "allergy mom" this clear information helps me keep my family safe, even if that means not choosing to buy Cheerios. I wish every company was as candid and clear.
