Kellogg recalls cereal due to 31-state Salmonella outbreak

Kellogg Co. on June 14 issued a recall of Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal due to reports of Salmonella contamination.

The Salmonella outbreak sickened 73 people across 31 states. No deaths have been reported, but 24 people required hospitalization. Most of the outbreaks occurred in California, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania, the CDC told CNN.

Epidemiological evidence points to Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal consumed between March 3-28 as the primary source of the outbreak.

Kellogg is asking individuals who purchased Kellogg’s Honey Smacks during the contamination dates to discard them and inform the company for a refund.
