CDC Warning: Kellogg’s Honey Smacks Cereal Linked To Salmonella Outbreak

Hannah Bleau

I’m big on cereal. I try to keep away from the RIDICULOUSLY sugary cereals, although lemme tell ya. It’s taking everything in me not to buy Nutter Butter cereal. I’m a sucker for peanut butter.

I’m currently on a Special K kick. Kimber can attest. I literally filled her house up with 5 boxes of Special K cereal, and yes. We ate all of them. They’re the perfect snack. SUE ME.

ALL THAT BEING SAID. If you’re anything like me, being really into cereal and all, you should probably know about this.

The CDC has issued a warning on Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal. It’s been linked to a salmonella outbreak. They’re reporting at least 100 salmonella infections across 33 states.

The CDC states on its website:

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.

Don’t risk it. Take heed to the warning. “Do not eat this cereal.”

Just…don’t. It’s not that great anyway.
