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

CDC says avoid this cereal after it was linked to salmonella

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that, since their last update on June 14th, new cases were reported in Florida and Colorado, and an additional 27 people have fallen ill.

Kellogg Company, which did not respond to an immediate request for comment, launched an investigation into a third-party manufacturer who produces the cereal in mid-June after the infections were reported, according to the FDA.

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

The agency says it found salmonella in samples of Honey Smacks, which has been subject to a voluntary recall by Kellogg since mid-June.

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




"Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal".

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 public is urged to report any product being offered for sale".

This comes as the federal agency continues to investigate a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella.

The illness usually lasts about four to seven days. Pennsylvania (8), MA (7), and California (6) have the most cases, but illnesses are widespread and affecting all ages.

So far people from 33 states have been affected. About 1.2 percent of people infected get severe diarrhea that leads to hospitalization.
