‘Do not eat this cereal’: CDC links Honey Smacks, salmonella

The number of people with salmonella linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal has grown to 100 across the USA, prompting the CDC to issue a blunt warning via tweet: "Do not eat this cereal".

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday that 27 more people have gotten sick in a multistate outbreak of salmonella illness linked to recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal. There have been 30 hospitalizations and no deaths. "The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product.

Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal".

The FDA said on Thursday it would follow up with retailers to prevent the sale of the product. "Additionally, the public is urged to report any product being offered for sale to the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in their region".

USA health officials have issued a blunt warning for people to avoid Honey Smacks, a popular breakfast cereal linked to a salmonella outbreak.
