Do Not Eat Honey Smacks, at Least For Now!

If you've eaten Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, you might feel a little sick. Many reports of people getting sick from this cereal have come after they were recalled back in June for salmonella concerns. The Center of Disease Control and Prevention says that 30 more people have become sick over the cereal since July. 130 cases across 36 states, including New York, have been reported. 

The CDC wants to remind people to not buy or eat any Honey Smacks cereal. They say that retailers should not be selling the cereal, but that many still are as of recently. If you have already bought the cereal, either throw it away or return it to the store for a refund. If you stored it in another container, make sure to wash the container thoroughly.

Eating this cereal could result in fatal infections, fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Although no deaths have been reported, 34 people have been hospitalized due to the outbreak. Most individuals recover in 4 to 7 days, but the young and elderly are particularly vulnerable.
