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

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has expanded a recall of Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal believed to pose a risk of salmonella. Infections continued to climb, despite efforts by the FDA and CDC to warn consumers and retailers that the cereal has been recalled and should not be consumed or sold.

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.

At least 30 of the 100 have been hospitalised, while no deaths have been reported, the CDC said. No deaths have been reported. Tests also confirmed the strain in samples of leftover Honey Smacks cereal from the homes of sickened people in Montana, New York, and Utah.

The CDC has urged consumers not to eat Honey Smacks "in any size packaging" and to throw opened or unopened boxes in the trash even if some of the cereal had been eaten without people falling ill.




So far people from 33 states have been affected.

Use or consumption of products contaminated with salmonella can result in serious illness, including fatal infections, fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, especially for young, frail or elderly people, according to the CDC.

Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal has now been linked to at least 100 cases of salmonella infection across the USA since March.

But efforts to recall the product were not successful.
