This one landed in my Twitter stream just as Boots was diving into a bowl of ... Cocoa Puffs: "New peanut flour warning for General Mills cereals."

Luckily, he's not the child who's allergic and Big Guy is at school. Kind of disquieting that the  warning has been floating around the food allergy community for months but General Mills just now is changing its labeling to say that several products contain nuts.

Disquieting but, sadly, not unusual. "I'm sure we'll all check our cereal boxes now!" blogger Nut Free Mom wrote.
