‘Do not eat this cereal’: CDC links Honey Smacks, salmonella

Salmonella 101 What you need to know

USA health officials have issued a stark warning against eating Honey Smacks, the popular Kellogg's breakfast cereal, after it was linked to a salmonella outbreak that has sickened more than 100 people in 33 states across the country in the past month. Those symptoms can last between four and seven days, and such illnesses send about 23,000 people to the hospital every year, according to the CDC.

Thirty people have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported in this outbreak.

The cases have been reported in 33 states, including New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, California, Maryland and Virginia.

I've found what I wanted to find and it was Frankie, so I'm going to go and get him. "I'm a bit nervous but mostly excited". Samira, meanwhile, summed up her Love Island experience by comparing the villa to a roller coaster ride.


Two states were also added to the outbreak list - Florida and Colorado.

Of those victims who were interviewed about what they ate, the most cited cereal was Honey Smacks.

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.

Boost for England as Croatia star is ruled out
I think he just said he isn't as confident as everyone else about England winning tomorrow. He wants them to keep pushing, no matter where it ends.


The agency has said that it has found salmonella stains in unopened and leftover samples of Honey Smacks.

But efforts to recall the product were not successful. Within 12 to 72 hours after infection, fever, stomach aches, and diarrhea begin.

Most people recover without treatment, however.

These are the semi-final matchups at the FIFA World Cup (SCHEDULE)
For France , losing in the 2016 European Championships final to Portugal in Paris has provided added motivation. It all shows how a World Cup can turn a player's fortunes around in a short period of time.


The CDC announced Thursday that customers should avoid Honey Smacks, tweeting, "Do not eat this cereal". Check your home for it and throw it away, or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Interviews with ill people allowed investigators to identify Honey Smacks as a possible source of the illnesses, triggering the recall. "The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product". But the cereal is still being sold in some stores.
