The CDC is advising consumers and retailers not to eat, serve, or sell any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal.
It was all the way back in June that we first learned of a new Salmonella outbreak that was being linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks breakfast cereal.
However, consumers should not purchase any Honey Smacks cereal, regardless of its package size or best buy date.
The Federal Drug Administration reported that some stores are still selling recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, despite the recall earlier this summer. "The FDA has come aware that recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal is still being offered for sale".
JD.com's CEO was arrested on allegation of rape
The founder and CEO of the popular Chinese retailer was arrested last week while on a business trip in Minnesota. In an earlier statement posted to Chinese social media network Weibo, JD.com described the allegations as false.
Symptoms usually begin within a week after exposure to the bacteria. That brings the total number of illnesses to 130 cases in 36 states. Most people recover on their own without medical treatment. "However, in some persons, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized".
Throw out the cereal or return it for a refund.
If you have cereal that looks like Kellogg's Honey Smacks in a container without the packaging, and don't remember the brand or type, throw it away. The outbreak is still spreading: three new states reported illnesses in August. If you have symptoms of a salmonella infection and have recently eaten Kellogg's Honey Snacks cereal, talk to your doctor.
Honey Smacks' ingredients are listed as: Sugar, Wheat, Dextrose, Honey, Contains 2% or Less of Vegetable, Salt, Caramel Color, Soy Lecithin, BHT for Freshness. Thoroughly wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again.
Consumers who bought the potentially affected product can contact Kellogg's for a full refund, the company said in a statement.
