RECALL: Step Away From the Kellogg’s Honey Smacks
Having a big bowl of cereal for breakfast this morning? If it's Kellogg's Honey Smacks, you might want to think again!
Kellogg's is voluntarily recalling Honey Smacks cereal due to a possible link to a multi-state salmonella outbreak.
The CDC says the puffed wheat cereal is a likely source of the outbreak that has sickened 73 people in 31 states. There have been 24 people hospitalized, but so far no deaths have been reported. Most of the illnesses have been in Massachusetts, California, New York, and Pennsylvania.
The FDA is inspecting a facility that manufactures Honey Smacks. Customers are being told to not eat any of the cereal. The UPC code for the recalled 15.3-ounce packages is 38000 39103, according to Kellogg's and the CDC. The recalled 23-ounce packages have a UPC code of 38000 14810.
