"Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal".
Some retailers are still selling recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks responsible for an expanding nationwide Salmonella outbreak, spurring the FDA to once again urge consumers to not buy or eat the cereal.
"Do not eat Honey Smacks cereal".
Updates from the CDC and FDA say Honey Smacks of all package sizes and best-by dates should be thrown out.
One hundred people are confirmed with infections from Salmonella Mbandaka, with 30 having been admitted to hospitals, according to the Centers for Disease and Prevention. A case count map breaks down the location and prevalence of cases, the first of which was reported in early March. No deaths have been reported in the latest outbreak.
The CDC and the FDA are working with state and local health officials across the country to investigate the source of the contamination.
Florida and Colorado are the latest states to report illnesses as part of the outbreak, bringing the total number of states affected to 33.
The statement said salmonella strains had been found in both unopened and leftover samples of Honey Smacks at several locations. "All Honey Smacks cereal was recalled in June 2018".
Right now there are no other Kellogg products impacted by the recall. Within 12 to 72 hours after infection, fever, stomach aches, and diarrhea begin. Customers should either throw away the product or may return their box of cereal to a store for a full refund.
Children under the age of 5 and adults over the age of 65, as well as people with weakened immune systems, are more likely to suffer more severe symptoms.
