If you're about to pour a bowl of Honey Smacks, stop! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued an alarming warning to not eat any Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal, regardless of package size or best-by date due to possible contamination with Salmonella. The new warning is in addition to the Kellogg recall issued last month, where only 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce packages of the cereal with a "best if used by" date from June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019 were recalled.  This new warning covers all packages of Honey Smacks regardless of "best buy" dates as an additional 27 cases of sickness have been reported, bringing a total of 100 people in 33 states, including Florida, from salmonella since June 14th. Symptoms of salmonella include fever, diarrhea and abdominal pain that begins 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria. The CDC says that even if some of the cereal was eaten and no one got sick, throw the rest of it away or return it for a refund. IF you have become sick after eating Honey Smacks you are asked to contact your health care provider and report it.
