Salmonella linked to Honey Smacks cereal sickens 100 in 33 states

About 100 people have been affected by a Salmonella outbreak linked to the popular Kelloggs Cereal Honey Smacks.

In June, Kellogg said it was investigating the third-party manufacturer that produces Honey Smacks after it was contacted by the FDA and CDC about the illness. People in 33 states have been sickened, and 30 of the 100 people who have fallen ill wound up in the hospital.

The agency said that epidemiological and laboratory evidence indicates the cereal is behind the multistate salmonella Mbandaka outbreak. No deaths have been reported.

The outbreak began on June 8, prompting Caito Foods, LLC to recall precut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and fruit medley products produced at the Caito Foods facility in Indianapolis. But the cereal is still being sold in some stores. However, the FDA is asking that consumers avoid purchasing or consuming any Honey Smacks cereal for the time being - regardless of the dates on the box - out of an abundance of caution.

Most people recover without treatment, however. However, some people develop symptoms so severe that they need to be hospitalized.
