General Mills recalls 1.8 million boxes of Cheerios for gluten allergen

People with celiac disease and allergies to wheat are being urged to take a closer look in their kitchen pantries.

On Monday afternoon, General Mills announced a voluntary recall of 1.8 million boxes of Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios that were manufactured in July at the company’s Lodi, California, plant.

Word spread quickly on Twitter and Facebook, especially from those affected by food allergies and digestive ailments.

A press release called this an “isolated incident”:

“The use of wheat flour means the cereals are not gluten-free, and people with conditions like wheat allergies or celiac disease who consume it might suffer an allergic reaction or discomfort.”

In a blog post by Jim Murphy , president of the cereal division, the company quickly took responsibility. Murphy opened his post by admitting he is “embarrassed and truly sorry.” He also made it a point to note that time was an important factor in announcing the recall:

“The recalled code dates are detailed in our press release issued minutes ago,” he wrote. 

Keep your cool in a crisis with these 13 tips.

On Twitter, health and news organizations posted details on the voluntary recall. Some snarky comments appeared online, too.

Infographic: Fall season can trigger asthma in nation’s 7 million kids

September and the fall season can cause flare-ups in asthma, especially for the 7 million children afflicted with the respiratory condition.

Dr. Giovanni Piedimonte of Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine says that when school gets underway, physicians see a significant increase in patients suffering asthma attacks. Students are exposed to an increase in germs and are more susceptible to upper respiratory infections, he says. This, in turn, inflames airwaves and can trigger asthma attacks.

Changes in weather are also to blame for a spike in asthma attacks among children and adults. This infographic says 25 million people in the U.S. suffer from asthma. Based on the following stats, communicators can develop some new marketing and messaging for patients:

  • An asthma diagnosis is five times more likely to occur before age 20 than in later years.

  • Lifestyle factors such as obesity, smoking and living in urban areas are linked to asthma.

  • Exercise in cold, dry conditions often cause flare-ups.

Why 14 Million Newly Insured Americans Have Not Overwhelmed Doctors’ Offices

With 14 million newly insured individuals gaining health coverage under the ACA since last year, 2014, nearly everyone expected doctors’ offices to be overwhelmed with new patients. But, according to recent statistics, that has simply not happened.

According to an AthenaHealth survey of 16,000 providers, there was only a slight uptick in new patient visits to primary care doctors in 2014, from 22.6 percent in 2013 to 22.9 percent in 2014.

Researchers say that people tend to access healthcare more when they are insured. And the ACA has expanded medical insurance coverage faster than any new health policy since Medicare and Medicaid were created in 1965. While 14 million newly insured sounds like a big number, it actually represents about 4 percent of Americans going from uninsured to insured status.

Many healthcare consultants and experts simply assumed that all these newly insured people would run right to the doctor’s office with a plethora of untreated or complex medical conditions. But the survey found no evidence of that. Logic dictates that a person with health insurance is not necessarily a sick person who needs to see a doctor. Those 14 million newly insured folks are not 14 million sick people.

How will you get your fair share of the patients/cases you want from the 14 million when they do get sick and search for providers? Choose your specialty here (http://www.practicebuilders.com/specialties) to learn more.
