Salmonella linked to Honey Smacks cereal sickens 100 in 33 states

Salmonella linked to Honey Smacks cereal sickens 100 in 33 states

A sign hangs outside the Kellogg's factory near Manchester, Britain March 7, 2016.

In a post on Twitter Thursday, the CDC said Honey Smacks has been linked to 100 Salmonella infections in 33 states and warned, "Do not eat this cereal". "The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product".

The CDC says at least 30 of the people infected in the outbreak have been hospitalized. Though the recall covers cereal with a best-by date of June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019, the agency is recommending people avoid the cereal altogether. More information on the recall can be found on the FDA's website.

In addition, the agency has advised the public to report any sales of the cereal to the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in their area.

Salmonella infections can cause illness, or death in rare cases.

Retailers should not sell or serve Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal.

"All Honey Smacks cereal was recalled in June 2018". At that time, 73 people in 31 states had confirmed cases of salmonella poisoning.

Investigators have laboratory confirmation that the outbreak strain of Salmonella Mbandaka is in the manufacturing facility and in unopened packages of the cereal.

Even if some of the cereal has been eaten and no one got sick, throw the rest of it away or return it for a refund.

Symptoms usually begin within a week after exposure to the bacteria.

Most people recover without treatment, however.

Use or consumption of products contaminated with salmonella can result in serious illness, including fatal infections, fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, especially for young, frail or elderly people, according to the CDC.
