As a North Charleston foodborne illness lawyer , I’m happy to hear , no injuries, illnesses or reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products have been reported. I urge consumers with this breakfast food to throw it out or return it to the store of purchase for a full refund. MSG is a salt based food additive and flavor enhancer. Some studies have linked to common additive to health problems such as migraine headaches, obesity and hyperactivity in children.
