Kellogg’s Honey Smacks Cereal Recall Moves Into Minnesota
Time to check your cupboards! A recall of Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal which was initiated back in June has been expanded - with now more than 100 people affected with salmonella - including one person from Minnesota.
As stated, the recall is due to salmonella concerns. According to news sources, the popular cereal has been linked to outbreaks in more than 30 states. While the recall has been around since the beginning of the summer, officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration suggest that the cereal is still being sold on some store shelves.
Specifically, here are the details about which packages of Honey Smacks are affected:
15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of the cereal with a "best if used by" date of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019 for the potential presence of salmonella. The recalled 15.3 oz.
