Recalled Honey Smacks still for sale; Salmonella outbreak continues to grow

According to the CDC, they have continued to receive reports of illnesses. On June 14, 2018 the FDA began collecting environmental and product samples from the contract manufacturer's facility.

Retailers should not sell any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal.

Public health officials are asking consumers who see Honey Smacks for sale to immediately contact the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in their region.

It says that regardless of expiration date, the cereal should be thrown away or returned to a retailer for a refund. Do NOT eat. Do NOT buy - retailers cannot legally sell.

Illnesses in this outbreak started on dates ranging from March 3, 2018 to August 7, 2018. "The FDA continues to collect information to determine any additional sources".

"The FDA has become aware that recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal are still being offered for sale", the agency said in a July statement.

"The Kellogg Co. recalled all Honey Smacks products that were on the market within the cereal's one-year shelf-life".

It is not clear how such vast quantities of Honey Smacks got infected, but it is not surprising to food safety specialists.

Additionally, if you store cereal that looks like Kellogg's Honey Smacks in a container without the packaging and do not remember the brand or type, throw it away.

Honey Smacks' ingredients are listed as: Sugar, Wheat, Dextrose, Honey, Contains 2% or Less of Vegetable, Salt, Caramel Color, Soy Lecithin, BHT for Freshness.

However, the contaminated cereal is still being sold in some locations, the CDC said, citing the US Food and Drug Administration.

Your best bet is to avoid eating the cereal at all.

People who consume food tainted by salmonella bacteria may develop symptoms including diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after exposure, according to the CDC. "Healthy individuals typically recover in four to seven days with treatment", USA Today reported.
