You Should Stop Eating Kellogg's Honey Smacks

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has expanded a recall of Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal believed to pose a risk of salmonella.

According to the FDA, retailers can't legally offer the cereal for sale.

Kelloggs voluntarily began recalling the cereal in June.

Symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps and typically present 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria.

Kellogg in June recalled an estimated 1.3 million cases of its Honey Smacks cereal from more than 30 US states due to the potential for Salmonella contamination. The most recent of the illnesses was reported to the CDC on July 2, 18 days after the first recall notice. No deaths have been reported, the CDC said.

Florida and Colorado are the latest states to report illnesses as part of the outbreak, bringing the total number of states affected to 33.

The Kellogg Company recalled Honey Smacks that were within the one-year shelf life, but the CDC warns Honey Smacks with earlier dates may also be contaminated. More than 100 people have become sick and 30 were hospitalized.

If you store cereal that looks like Kellogg's Honey Smacks in a container without the packaging and don't remember the brand or type, throw it away.

An updated advisory from the CDC recommends that consumers throw away the sweetened, puffed wheat cereal "regardless of package size or best-by date".
