Posted: Updated:

Gluten-free cheerios? They might be hurting more than helping right now. 

General Mills is recalling 1.8 million boxes of cereal labeled as gluten-free. 

The company is working to convert five cheerio flavors to gluten-free.

The recall affects Honey Nut Cheerios and Classic Cheerios in yellow boxes that have, "Better if used by the date of July 14, 2016," on them. 

Company officials say these boxes may have wheat in them. 

They are asking customers with wheat allergies who bough the affected cereal boxes to call the company at 1-800-775-8370.
