Honey Smacks, salmonella linked by CDC: 'Do not eat this cereal'

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

Popular children's cereal Honey Smacks has been linked to a massive salmonella outbreak that has infected 100 people.

According to the FDA, retailers can't legally offer the cereal for sale.

"Products with earlier dates could also potentially be contaminated", says the FDA update.

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

Two people in Kentucky have become ill with this strain of Salmonella. The source of the outbreak remains under investigation. No deaths have been reported in the latest outbreak.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration said on Thursday recalled Kellogg Co Honey Smacks cereal was still being sold at retail outlets and warned consumers not to purchase the product.

The CDC continued its consumer advisory issued on 12 July, saying that in the event a cereal "looks like Kellogg's Honey Smacks in a container without the packaging and don't remember the brand or type, throw it away".

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

The salmonella illnesses started in March and may include more cases than those reported so far, officials said, because it takes an average of two to four weeks before they're reported to the CDC.

The CDC says that regardless of expiration date, the cereal should be thrown away or returned to a retailer for a refund.
