- The FDA, CDC, along with state and local officials are investigating a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Mbandaka infections linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks sweetened puffed wheat cereal.
The agency recommends that consumers not eat any Kellogg's Honey Smacks and that they clean any containers that held unused Honey Smacks.
Since then, 130 people in 36 states including the Tri-State Area have been affected. This advice applies to Honey Smacks in any size package and with any "best if used by" date.
After issuing a recall for Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal in June, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a new warning advising everyone to stay away from the cereal at all costs.
Salmonella is a bacteria that can make people sick with diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. Thirty people have been hospitalized in this outbreak. The first cases of illness in this outbreak began with symptoms on March 3, and the most recent individuals began feeling ill on July 2. Thankfully, no deaths have been reported.

"The recall notice accounts for all Honey Smacks cereal on the market within the cereal's estimated one-year shelf life", according to the news release.
While most people recover within a week, some illnesses can last longer and be very severe, especially in young children, older adults, and people with compromised immune systems.
