Kellogg recalls Honey Smacks cereal after multistate salmonella outbreak
(KMSP) - Kellogg is voluntarily recalling some of its Honey Smacks cereal after salmonella infected 73 people in 31 states.
The company is recalling 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of the cereal with a "best if used by" date of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019 for the potential presence of salmonella. The recalled 15.3 oz. Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal has a UPC code of 38000 39103. The recalled 23.0 oz. Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal has a UPC code of 38000 14810. The UPC code is on the bottom of the box.
People became sick between March 3 to May 28, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says illness that occurred after May 22 might not be reported yet due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported. No cases have been reported in Minnesota so far, but one person did become sick in Wisconsin.
Kellogg is asking people who purchased the potentially affected product to discard it and contact the company for a full refund.
