CDC Warns Consumers Away From Honey Smacks Cereal

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

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

As more cases rolled in, the US Food and Drug Administration told the public on Friday: "The FDA is advising consumers to not eat and to discard any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal".

A sign hangs outside the Kellogg's factory near Manchester, Britain March 7, 2016. "Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal". "The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product".

That's what the Centers for Disease Control advised bluntly in a tweet Thursday, noting that more than 100 people in 33 states have been infected with salmonella. Though the recall covers cereal with a best-by date of June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019, the agency is recommending people avoid the cereal altogether. The most recent of the illnesses was reported to the CDC on July 2, 18 days after the first recall notice. Samples of the facility's environment and the product collected during the FDA's inspection match the outbreak strain of salmonella mbandaka, the agency said. The CDC now advises that anyone who has purchased the cereal return it for a refund or throw it out completely regardless of an expiration date. But the cereal is still being sold in some stores.

The CDC said at least 30 of the people infected in the outbreak have been hospitalized.

According to the FDA, the ages of those affected range from less than one year to 95 (median 57 years) and 68% of cases are female. Sick people should tell their doctors about their possible exposure to Salmonella because special lab tests are required to properly diagnose the infections. 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.
