FDA says stop eating Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal as new Salmonella cases rise
Back in mid-June the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a bulletin warning consumers that Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal could potentially be contaminated with Salmonella. Over 70 cases had already been confirmed and linked to the cereal, and Kellogg's was in the middle of a massive recall to get the product pulled from shelves. Well, it's getting worse, and the FDA is now asking people to please, please, PLEASE stop eating the tainted cereal.
In a new update to the outbreak timeline, the FDA now reveals that 100 people have been infected with Salmonella as a result of eating the cereal. Cases have come in from 33 states and roughly one-third of those affected have had to be hospitalized.
