A recent study by the Environmental Working Group found a pesticide called chlormequat in oat-based foods sold in the U.S., including popular brands like Cheerios and Quaker Oats.

The study detected chlormequat in 80% of people tested in different regions.

While the chemical has been linked to reproductive and developmental issues in animals, its potential harm to humans is a concern.

The Environmental Protection Agency has set acceptable tolerance levels for chlormequat chloride in certain foods.

Both Quaker Oats and General Mills, the company behind Cheerios, have stated their products meet regulatory guidelines for safety.

“We have a comprehensive food safety management system in place. We adhere to all regulatory guidelines to ensure the safest, highest quality products for our consumers,” Quaker Oats stated.

“Food safety is always our top priority at General Mills, and we take care to ensure our food is prepared and packaged in the safest way possible,” General Mills stated.
