Yoshon Advisory re Cheerios

We have just received a report that General Mills started incorporating new crop oat flour into the “Cheerios cereals” as early as November 2012.  We are trying to obtain actual dates.

 

Until we obtain actual dates, please use the following guidelines:

 

Cheerios (excluding Multigrain) - Best Before date of 14NO2013 or earlier.

 

Best Before dates between 15NO2013 and 07DE2013 are sofek yoshon.

 

Best Before dates after 07DE2013 are very possibly chodosh.
