Kellogg’s recalls Honey Smacks cereal over Salmonella risk

(WSVN) - Kellogg’s is recalling its Honey Smacks cereal boxes due to the potential presence of Salmonella.

According to the Centers for Disease Control,  the cereal has been linked to a Salmonella outbreak in 31 states.

A total of 73 people have fallen ill. However, no deaths have been reported.

Kellogg’s launched an investigation with a third-party manufacturer who produces Honey Smacks after the cereal company was contacted by the Food & Drug Administration and the CDC regarding the reported illnesses.

As a result, the company is voluntarily recalling 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages, with “best used by” date of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019.

People who have purchased these packages are advised to throw them away or contact the company for a full refund.

No other Kellogg’s products have been affected by this recall.
