The recalled products had use by dates of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019 and involved the cereals' 15.3 ounce and 23 oz. packages.

Though Kellogg recalled all Honey Smacks from shelves in June when they were linked to a salmonella outbreak, the FDA said Thursday that it has received reports of some stores still selling the cereal. People in 33 states have been sickened, and 30 of the 100 people who have fallen ill wound up in the hospital.

The CDC says that regardless of expiration date, the cereal should be thrown away or returned to a retailer for a refund.

"Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal", it wrote.

Symptoms last about four to seven days, and although most people improve without treatment, some may require hospitalization because of severe diarrhea.


Consuming products contaminated with salmonella may result in serious illness, according to the CDC. About 450 people die in the United States each year from salmonella.

"The FDA has become aware that recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal are still being offered for sale", the agency said in a statement. Within 12 to 72 hours after infection, fever, stomach aches, and diarrhea begin.

The FDA inspected the site and said that samples taken on the site matched the outbreak strain. Thirty people have been hospitalized in this outbreak.

Earlier this year, 210 people were infected by an E. coli outbreak that killed five people linked to romaine lettuce that had been grown in Arizona.
