    A month after General Millsrecalled 1.8 million boxes of supposedly gluten-free Cheerios because they contained wheat, customers who bought the cereal are taking the company to court.

    Last Friday, two California shoppers filed a proposed class action suit against General Mills and the manufacturing manager at the plant that accidentally introduced wheat-containing flour into gluten-free Cheerios.

    The complaint alleges the company sold a misbranded product, resulting in customers purchasing items they otherwise would have avoided, as well as putting them at risk for potential health consequences from inadvertently consuming gluten.

    While the complaint mentions customers with gluten sensitivities, the suit seeks to represent all consumers who purchased the mislabeled boxes — not just those who became ill after consuming the cereal.

    I can't stand gluten free products. Pretty much tasteless products. They just don't play well with my palate.

    Same here. I feel the same about caffeine free drinks. Taste watered down. Don't like it.
