What is weed killer doing in cereal? Good question. What the Environmental Working calls unsafe amounts of the weed killer Glyphosate have been found in oat-based cereals like Cheerios, Lucky Charms and Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats. This is one ingredient you find in Roundup. You’ll want to take a look at the full study to understand what’s going on, but one lawsuit has already been filed and settled.

When you read a story like this what’s your reaction – do you head for the organic food aisle, start your own garden? I’d like to hear from you and how you handle food safety in your home @ann.kelly@coxinc.com. I appreciate your input and would love to tell the rest of Tampa Bay what a great job you’re doing!
