The CDC is uncharacteristically blunt in this tweet about the Salmonella outbreak involving Kellogg's Honey Smacks--
Ok, so this isn't something that you'd find in MY pantry, because our kids are grown and we're at least pretending to eat healthier these days.
But someone's been eating Honey Smacks... and people are still getting sick, despite previous warnings.
100 people in 33 states (including Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi) have gotten sick.
So the CDC is getting a little blunt in their latest warning-- DO NOT EAT THIS CEREAL!
Advice to Consumers
- Do not eat recalled Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal in any size packaging.
- Check your home for the recalled cereal and throw it away, or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
- Even if some of the cereal was eaten and no one got sick, throw the rest of it away or return it for a refund.
- If you store cereal that looks like Kellogg’s Honey Smacks in another container without the packaging and don’t remember the brand or type, throw it away.
- Kellogg’s Honey Smacks is a sweetened puffed wheat cereal.
- Thoroughly wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again, to remove harmful germs that could contaminate other food.
