CDC says avoid this cereal after it was linked to salmonella

In June, Kellogg said it was investigating the third-party manufacturer that produces Honey Smacks after it was contacted by the FDA and CDC about the illness.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is telling people not to eat Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, which has been linked to an outbreak of salmonella infections now numbering at least 100 people in 33 states. The recall was issued June 14. The first cases were reported in March and the most recent ones on July 2. Those symptoms can last between four and seven days, and such illnesses send about 23,000 people to the hospital every year, according to the CDC.

The statement said salmonella strains had been found in both unopened and leftover samples of Honey Smacks at several locations.

The Kellogg Company recalled Honey Smacks that were within the one-year shelf life, but the CDC warns Honey Smacks with earlier dates may also be contaminated. "The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product".

If you store cereal that looks like Kellogg's Honey Smacks in a container without the packaging and don't remember the brand or type, throw it away.

Common effects of salmonella is the result of a fever, cramps, or diarrhea within 12 to 72 hours of being exposed to the bacteria. Thoroughly wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again, to remove harmful germs that could contaminate other food.
