'Do not eat Honey Smacks cereal,' CDC warns amid salmonella outbreak

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday that 27 more people have gotten sick in a multistate outbreak of salmonella illness linked to recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal.

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

The FDA is sending out this reminder because it has learned some retailers are still selling the cereal.

At least 30 of the 100 have been hospitalised, while no deaths have been reported, the CDC said.

The recalled products had use by dates of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019 and involved the cereals' 15.3 ounce and 23 oz. packages. The federal agency urges consumers to report any product being offered for sale to the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in their region. Pennsylvania (8), MA (7), and California (6) have the most cases, but illnesses are widespread and affecting all ages. "Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal", the FDA reported.

The agency has said that it has found salmonella stains in unopened and leftover samples of Honey Smacks.

Regardless of the expiration date, the CDC says you should throw away the cereal or return it to a retailer for a refund. No deaths have been reported in the latest outbreak.

Symptoms usually begin within a week after exposure to the bacteria. Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. However, people in high-risk groups, which include children, older adults, pregnant women and anyone with a compromised immune system can develop serious complications which require hospitalization.
