If you’re a Kellogg’s Honey Smacks lover, this could be bad news for you. The company is voluntarily recalling the cereal after dozens of people came down with Salmonella after consuming it. The recall only affects the 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. cereal boxes, with the “best if used by” dates between June 14, 2018 and June 14, 2019.
Honey Smacks have been recalled nationwide, as well as some parts of Mexico, Costa Rica, the Caribbean, Guatemala, Mexico, Guam, Tahiti, and Saipan.
Salmonella can get in the bloodstream and can cause severe, sometimes deadly infections. Less serious side effects can be fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and will typically lasts a few days, but up to a week.
Honey Smacks are the only Kellogg’s cereal involved in the recall. Kellogg’s has suggested that consumers with the recalled cereal, either throw the remaining product away or contact the company for a refund.
