Kellogg Company is voluntarily recalling 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of Kellogg's® Honey Smacks® cereal out of concern they could contain Salmonella after people in 31 states fell ill with the disease.
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.
People who have bought the cereal should throw it away, and contact the company for a full refund. Of the ones affected by the outbreak, 24 of them had been hospitalised and no deaths have been reported so far.
Kellogg's issued a voluntary recall of the brand's Honey Smacks cereal Wednesday.
Dozens of people in several states went to the hospital after eating the cereal, which the Food and Drug Administration announced a recall for on Thursday.
New bilateral accord on Macedonia's name opens its door to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership
The deal reached by the prime ministers of the two countries is expected to be signed by their foreign ministers this weekend. Critics in Macedonia, meanwhile, see any modification of the country's name as a threat to their national identity.
Nationwide, there have been 75 cases of Salmonella in 31 states, including two cases in Rhode Island, associated with the investigation that led to this recall.
New York, California, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania are among the states to report cases of the Salmonella Mbandaka strain, with New York reporting the highest most at 7.
People infected with salmonella can experience severe illness, though symptoms may vary.
Other Kellogg products are not part of the recall. Symptoms of the illness include diarrhea, vomiting, fever and abdominal cramps, and appear within 12 and 72 hours of consumption of salmonella bacteria. Most people recover in four to seven days. The list of the foreign countries is: Aruba/Curaçao/Saint Maarten (Netherlands Antilles), the Bahamas, Barbados, Tortola (British Virgin Islands), Costa Rica, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Panama, and Tahiti (French Polynesia).
