U.S. salmonella outbreak: 'Do not eat Honey Smacks,' shoppers told

Salmonella 101 What you need to know FDA: Retailers cannot legally sell Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal following recall
| 14 July, 2018, 09:12

However, the FDA is asking that consumers avoid purchasing or consuming any Honey Smacks cereal for the time being - regardless of the dates on the box - out of an abundance of caution.

A salmonella outbreak linked to a popular Kellogg's cereal has infected 100 people, the United States' Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday (July 12).

In interviews, 43 people specifically reported eating Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal.

"Do not eat Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal of any size package or with any "best if used by" date", it wrote."Do not eat this cereal", the CDC said bluntly in a tweet. It's still not clear how the contamination might have occurred.

There has been one reported case in Ohio. No deaths have been reported in this outbreak.


The cereal is the likely source of the salmonella outbreak, the CDC said.

Two people in Kentucky have become ill with this strain of Salmonella. Among 77 with available information, 30 (39%) have been hospitalized, the FDA said.

Thirty people have been hospitalized.

Of those victims who were interviewed about what they ate, the most cited cereal was Honey Smacks.

"The recall notice accounts for all of the product that is on the market within the cereal's estimated one year shelf-life". But the cereal is still being sold in some stores. Most infections usually last four to seven days and most people recover without treatment. "Thoroughly wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again, to remove harmful germs that could contaminate other food".
