Glad I eat generic Corn Flakes.
by Pip Sheppard G2G Astronaut (2.5m points)
Pip, I can tell you that the "generic" brands are made by the same companies as the name brands. I worked many years in a retail grocery store and our private brand label was covering up the original label from a big brand name.
Nooo, say it ain’t so! (Glad to see Shirley’s answer below!)

Cereals are not being recalled. A report released by Environmental Working Group said they found traces of a weed killer in the cereals. The FDA is considering the results of the study and General Mills says their products are safe. But no recall as yet.
by Shirley Dalton G2G6 Pilot (503k points)
Oh good. Thank you Shirley.
Our stores here are pulling the products.
Not a good sign.
Keep in mind this particular weed killer is used on a multitude of crops, not just those that go into cereals. Probably there are traces of this weed killer in just about everything you eat. They just don't get singled out by concerned groups in studies.
Sorry, Dallace, but I don't consider it good to hear that a study found traces of weed killer in our food but the FDA is only considering the study!
Traces of elements which are not good for us are found all the time in our foods. Science and FDA usually set an upper limit below which the elements are not considered dangerous.

That is not what I meant, of course it isn't good they found weed killer in our food. I just meant good there is no recall as of yet. cheeky

Dallace, you’ve received nearly 200 “Thank yous” since you joined WikiTree over a little over a year ago. I think that speaks to how much folks here appreciate what you do as a part of our community.

BTW: I haven’t seen you say the wrong thing. But you have to expect that when we communicate online, it’s not the same as communicating face-to-face, so it’s possible for folks to misconstrue what others say.

I’d say, hang in there. You are a valued part of our community.

Dallace, I got 44 down votes on my answers & I've had 6 MIRs filed against me. . I LIKE ITdevil

Badges of Honor. (Maybe they really should create a badge for that!)
Thank you Pip, I appreciate your kindness.You are a good person.

 I always worry about saying the wrong things that is part of my anxiety issues.

I don't know why anyone would want to down vote you, Eddie. You are a very funny person, very strange, but funny. 

If you run short of Military profiles I have a few you can spruce up. laugh

I had my first psychotic break when they cancelled FIREFLY.broken heart

I understand getting upset, but a total melt down.
‘S all right. I sometimes have a hard time making myself clear and often have to explain to make my point.

Feeling stressed? PM me anytime. I’m a good listener.
