USA salmonella outbreak: 'Do not eat Honey Smacks,' shoppers told

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

Although Kellogg's recalled the cereals on June 14, the FDA reports that recalled packages of Honey Smacks cereal are still being offered for sale.

"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", the CDC said in a statement on its website.

"Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal", the agency said in a statement.

A total of 100 people have been sickened as a result; 30 people have been hospitalized.

The FDA says the third-party facility that makes Honey Smacks hasn't made any since June 12, two days before the recall. "Additionally, the public is urged to report any product being offered for sale to the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in their region".

This comes as the federal agency continues to investigate a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.

In this outbreak, NY has the most cases (11), followed by Pennsylvania (eight), MA (seven), and California (six).

The cases have been reported in 33 states, including New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, California, Maryland and Virginia. Though the recall covers cereal with a best-by date of June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019, the agency is recommending people avoid the cereal altogether.
