CDC expands Honey Smacks cereal recall; 100 sick in 33 states

The US Food and Drug Administration urged consumers on Thursday to avoid eating and retailers to not sell Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal because of the chance of salmonella contamination. The agency says it found salmonella in samples of Honey Smacks, which has been subject to a voluntary recall by Kellogg since mid-June.

The FDA said on Thursday it would follow up with retailers to prevent the sale of the product.

"All Honey Smacks cereal was recalled in June 2018". The first cases were reported in March and the most recent ones on July 2. About 450 people die in the United States each year from salmonella.

The CDC reported that 24 of the people affected have been hospitalized after becoming infected with bacteria.

The recalled products also can be identified by the UPC code on the bottom of the boxes.

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. Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.

Kellogg Company, which did not respond to an immediate request for comment, launched an investigation into a third-party manufacturer who produces the cereal in mid-June after the infections were reported, according to the FDA.

Additionally, if you stored the tainted cereal in any kind of a reusable container you'll need to wash and sanitize that container before you use it again.

Symptoms last about four to seven days, and although most people improve without treatment, some may require hospitalization because of severe diarrhea.
