Kellogg recalls Honey Smacks cereal over salmonella risk

Kellogg Co said on Thursday it is recalling an estimated 1.3 million cases of its Honey Smacks cereal from more than 30 US states due to the potential for Salmonella contamination, in the latest case of USA food products possibly tainted by the illness-causing bacteria.

The Battle Creek-based company says it immediately launched an investigation with the third-party manufacturer who produces Honey Smacks after learning about reported illnesses from the FDA and CDC.

Health officials said there have been 75 reported cases of salmonella in 31 states, including two in Rhode Island associated with Honey Smacks cereal.

The CDC said that the majority of the outbreaks have taken place in California, Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania.

The smaller box of the sugary cereal has a UPC code 3800039103 while the bigger package has a UPC code of 3800014810. No other Kellogg products are impacted by the recall, the company said.

The "Best if Used By Date" can be found on the top of the cereal box and the UPC code can be found on the bottom. Healthy people may experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Kellogg is asking that people who purchased potentially affected product discard it and contact the company for a full refund. If the cereal has been stored in containers other than the original packaging and consumers don't remember the brand or type, they should throw it away. The CDC says exposure to salmonella can result in serious illness and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the frail or elderly people, and people with weakened immune systems.

Salmonella can cause serious illness or even death in rare cases.
