FDA Advises Against Eating ‘Honey Smacks’ Cereal Due to Salmonella Outbreak
If you currently have a box of Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal in your pantry, you'll want to throw it out immediately or take it back to the store for a refund. There was a recall due to a salmonella outbreak announced back in June but people are still getting sick even though the cereal isn't available anymore.
According to WDIV, an additional 30 people have gotten sick in the multistate (including Michigan) outbreak of salmonella illness linked to recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal. One hundred thirty people have become ill since March.
Like I mentioned, you shouldn't see Honey Smacks on stores shelves but if you happen to you should contact the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in your area.
If you got a bad batch of Smacks you'll know within 12 to 72 hours after exposure. The symptoms aren't fun and include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. Death is rare but possible if not treated right away.
