Throw Away This Cereal Or You May Get Smacked with Salmonella
If sugary cereals are your thing and you especially love the sweet flavor of Kellogg's Honey Smacks, get over it and throw it all away now.
Sounds a little dramatic, right? I'm not saying you can't ever enjoy a bowl of your favorite cereal ever again, but you may just want to put that love on hold for a awhile.
On Thursday Kellogg issued a recall of their Honey Smacks cereal over fear of salmonella contamination.
Their press release states;
Kellogg Company today announced it is voluntarily recalling 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of Kellogg’s® Honey Smacks® cereal (with code dates listed below) because these products have the potential presence of Salmonella. No other Kellogg products are impacted by this recall.
Kellogg launched an investigation with the third-party manufacturer who produces Honey Smacks immediately after being contacted by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding reported illnesses.
