The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned consumers that Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal is still not safe to eat. In an update on their website, the CDC reported that a total of 130 people have reported sicknesses across 36 states. Thankfully there have been zero deaths but 34 hospitalizations.
While Kellogg's recalled the cereal back in June, the CDC noted that some Honey Smacks cereal is still being offered for sale. They urged shoppers not to purchase any boxes at this time, as the cereal may be contaminated with Salmonella.
