CDC: Don't Eat any Kellogg Honey Smacks of any size, date

Regardless of the package size or date codes, consumers should not eat any Kellogg’s Honey Smacks according to public health officials who say more than 70 people have Salmonella infections associated with the cereal.

Friday night both the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expanded their public warnings about the cereal. A day earlier Kellogg Co. initiated a recall of certain sized boxes of Honey Smacks with certain date codes.

“Do not eat Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal in any size package. Check your home for it and throw it away, or return it to the place of purchase for a refund,” the CDC urged in the outbreak update. “Retailers should not sell or serve recalled Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal.”

The FDA’s outbreak update explained that the Kellogg recall did not cover all of the potentially contaminated cereal. The recall notice accounts for all of the product that is on the market within the cereal’s estimated one year shelf life.
