'Do Not Eat' Kellogg's Honey Smacks Cereal, CDC Warns

FDA: Retailers cannot legally sell Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal following recall

Over 70 cases had already been confirmed and linked to the cereal, and Kellogg's was in the middle of a massive recall to get the product pulled from shelves. "The public is urged to report any product being offered for sale".

The FDA it is continuing to work with the firm to address corrective actions, according to its June 12 update.

The agency says it found salmonella in samples of Honey Smacks, which has been subject to a voluntary recall by Kellogg since mid-June.

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 FDA said on Thursday it would follow up with retailers to prevent the sale of the product. About 450 people die in the United States each year from salmonella. "All Honey Smacks cereal was recalled in June 2018".

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. Thoroughly wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again, to remove harmful germs that could contaminate other food. A case count map breaks down the location and prevalence of cases, the first of which was reported in early March. The most recent person to become sick had symptoms begin July 2. Well, it's getting worse, and the FDA is now asking people to please, please, PLEASE stop eating the tainted cereal.

And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the number sickened in the outbreak has reached 100 people in 33 states, the two latest states with ill people being Colorado and Florida.
