Malt O Meal Cereal: Don't eat that wheat!

It's no secret that a lot of contributors to tTUR are cereal enthusiasts. Well, lovers of whole grain and puffed wheat, be careful where you dip that spoon: Malt O Meal has been linked to at least 23 cases of salmonellosis reported in 14 states:
The cereals, which were recalled in the U.S. on April 5, were also sold under the brand names Acme, America's Choice, Food Club, Giant, Hannaford, Jewel, Laura Lynn, Pathmark, Shaw's, Shoprite, Tops and Weis Quality. The affected cereals [unsweetened Puffed Rice and unsweetened Puffed Wheat] were marked with the best-before date of April 8, 2008, through Mar. 18, 2009.
Gross. How the hell did salmonella agona get in your cereals, Malt O Meal!?! Cereaously loose, guys. Seriously.

that's revolting. It's a good thing I eat candy for breakfast (see above).

yeah, seriously. i gave up count chocula last year after i almost got TB from a stray fang in the box.

i've switched to pouring coke on top of gobstoppers most days. i also really like dr. pepper on nestle crunch bites, jolt on nerds rope (cut into bite-size morsels), and yoo-hoo poured over a combination of milk duds and junior mints.
