The CDC has been warning consumers of potential salmonella outbreak with Honey Smacks cereal. The Washington Examiner reports:
Consumers and retailers shouldn’t eat, sell, or serve Honey Smacks cereal because it has been linked to an outbreak of salmonella, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Kellogg’s, which makes Honey Smacks, issued a recall last month for boxes of the cereal, which is made of sweetened puffed wheat. The CDC said that consumers shouldn’t eat any of the cereal no matter the “best if used by” date.
The agency said Thursday that the outbreak had sickened 100 people from 33 states as of July 12. The outbreak has led to 30 hospitalizations, although no deaths have been reported.
Since the last update on June 14, salmonella cases linked to the cereal had sickened 27 people.
