Kellogg’s recalls Honey Smacks due to salmonella outbreak

(KEVN) - Kellogg Company is recalling its Honey Smacks cereal because it could be linked to a country-wide salmonella outbreak.

The recall includes 15.3- and 23-ounce packages of the cereal with a “best if used by” date from June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019. The 1.53-ounce box will have a UPC code of 38000 39103; while the 23-ounce box UPC code is 38000 14810.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends that people do not eat the recalled Kellogg’s Honey Smacks. Consumers should either through the cereal away or see if it can be returned for a refund.

If you have Honey Smacks stored in a container other than the product box and you can’t tell if it is recalled, the CDC states you need to just throw that cereal away.

Most people infected with salmonella will develop symptoms within 12 to 72 hours. These include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.

As of Thursday, the CDC reports that 73 people in 31 states have been infected with the outbreak strain of salmonella. No one in South Dakota or Wyoming has reported being sick.
