Kellogg’s Honey Smacks Recalled After Salmonella Outbreaks in More Than 30 States

If you have a box of Honey Smacks, it’s time to throw it away.

The CDC announced Kellogg’s is voluntarily recalling the cereal after reports of 73 salmonella outbreaks in 31 states. This includes both the 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of the cereal with the “best if used by” date from June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019. For the 15.3 oz boxes, the UPC code, which can be found at the bottom of the box, should read 38000 39103 whereas the 23.0 oz ones are 38000 14810.

According to Kellogg’s site, they “launched an investigation with the third-party manufacturer who produces Honey Smacks immediately after being contacted by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding reported illnesses.” At this point, Kellogg’s says only Honey Smacks are affected by the recall.
