The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) is reminding consumers nationwide not to buy Kellogg's Honey Smack Cereal.

“RECALL Update: Do NOT eat. Do NOT buy – retailers can NOT legally sell #HoneySmacks cereal. This product is linked to 130 lab-confirmed illnesses (salmonellosis) in 34 states with 36 hospitalizations (0 deaths)”, according to a USFDA Facebook post on Tuesday.

“CHECK your house and throw away any of this cereal you have. People who have become ill recently had it in their homes.  If a retailer is still selling Honey Smacks: DO NOT BUY!”, the post went on to say.

In July the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services issued a warning to consumers to not purchase or consume Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal due to the multistate outbreak of Salmonella Mbandaka. The USFDA also issued a statement at that time that retailers counld not legally offer the cereal for sale and should throw out 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce boxes.
