  • CDC says avoid this cereal after it was linked to salmonella

While the recall covers those boxes of Honey Smacks with a best-by date of June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019, the FDA is recommending consumers avoid the cereal altogether, because products with earlier dates could also potentially be contaminated.

The FDA it is continuing to work with the firm to address corrective actions, according to its June 12 update.

"The FDA has become aware that recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal are still being offered for sale", the agency said in a statement. "Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal".

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

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning people to stay away warning "Do not eat this cereal" in a Twitter warning issued on Thursday. At that time, 73 people in 31 states had confirmed cases of salmonella poisoning.

The CDC first announced the outbreak on June 14.

The agency is urging consumers to check their homes for the recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks.

"Even if some of the cereal has been eaten and no one got sick, throw the rest of it away or return it for a refund", it said. But the cereal is still being sold in some stores.

Additionally, if you stored the tainted cereal in any kind of a reusable container you'll need to wash and sanitize that container before you use it again. Interviews with ill people allowed investigators to identify Honey Smacks as a possible source of the illnesses, triggering the recall.
