Kellogg's Honey Smacks Cereal Linked to Salmonella

After 30 More People Get Sick, CDC Warns About Kellogg's Honey Smacks: "Do Not Eat This Cereal"

In July, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a statement that popular Kellogg's cereal Honey Smacks has been linked to a serious salmonella outbreak, but it seems that the agency's warning wasn't enough.

Since that recall, 30 more people have gotten sick from eating the cereal, so in an update, the CDC told retailers not to sell any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal and customers not to buy or eat it. They continued to implore parents to check their pantries as soon as possible.

Earlier this Summer, the CDC tweeted, "Do not eat this cereal" after it was confirmed that 100 people were infected in 33 states. At least 30 of those people had been hospitalized. The agency found salmonella in samples of the sweetened puffed wheat cereal, which has been subject to a voluntary recall by Kellogg since mid-June.

Regardless of the cereal box's expiration date, the government agency implores parents to throw it away or return it to a retailer for a refund.

The CDC also warns that salmonella infection often involves the development of a fever, cramps, or diarrhea within 12 to 72 hours of being exposed to the bacteria, and it can last up to seven days. Although most healthy individuals recover without intervention, infants and those with weakened immune systems are at a heightened risk of serious complications.
