Despite a recall in more than 30 states, Kellogg Co Honey Smacks cereal is still being sold at U.S. stores, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Thursday.
In June, Kellogg recalled an estimated 1.3 million boxes of Honey Smacks due to a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Mbandaka.
According to the CDC, the cereal has been linked to 100 Salmonella infections in 33 states. There have been 30 hospitalizations, but no deaths have been reported.
“Do not eat this cereal,” the agency said on Twitter Thursday.
According to the CDC, persons infected with Salmonella bacteria develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12-72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts from 4 to 7 days.
The affected products had use by dates of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019 and involved the cereals’ 15.3 ounce and 23 oz. packages.
The FDA is asking consumers to report if the product is being offered for sale to the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in their region.
