CDC expands Honey Smacks cereal recall; 100 sick in 33 states

The Centers for Disease Control is warning customers not to eat Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal after the breakfast was linked to 100 salmonella infections nationwide.

A sign hangs outside the Kellogg's factory near Manchester, Britain March 7, 2016.

The FDA said on Thursday it would follow up with retailers to prevent the sale of the product. Though the recall covers cereal with a best-by date of June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019, the agency is recommending people avoid the cereal altogether.

According to Reuters, the company recalled an estimated 1.3 million cases of the cereal but the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Thursday that it believes the cereal is still being sold by some stores. The federal agency urges consumers to report any product being offered for sale to the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator in their region. In these patients, the Salmonellainfection may spread from the intestines to the blood stream and then to other body sites and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.

Health officials said people get sick from Salmonella 12 to 72 hours after ingesting the germ, and experience diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps.
