Kellogg's Honey Smacks Cereal Linked to Salmonella

CDC Issues Warning About Kellogg's Honey Smacks: "Do Not Eat This Cereal"

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a statement about popular Kellogg's cereal Honey Smacks that has been linked to a serious salmonella outbreak, and parents will want to check their pantries as soon as possible.

On Thursday, 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 have 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.
