Multistate Outbreak of Salmonella Mbandaka Linked to Kellogg’s Honey Smacks Cereal

A Multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Mbandaka is being investigated by the FDA, CDC, along with state and local officials. Kellogg’s Honey Smacks sweetened puffed wheat cereal seems to be the source of this outbreak. The CDC reports that 73 people in 31 states have become ill, with 24 hospitalizations and no deaths. The Kellogg Company voluntarily recalled Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal. The recalled products were distributed across the United States including Guam and Saipan and in Aruba/Curaçao/Saint Maarten (Netherlands Antilles), the Bahamas, Barbados, Tortola (British Virgin Islands), Costa Rica, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Panama, and Tahiti (French Polynesia). The FDA is advising consumers not to eat any Honey Smack cereal. Kellogg 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. @ https://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/Outbreaks/ucm610827.htm?utm_campaign=Outbreak_Salmonella_Mbandaka_Honey_Smacks_06142018&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua&elqTrackId=e77671e668e844959c08d8b13ea89918&elq=c9448dc008604559a36ec66570293a2d&elqaid=3926&elqat=1&elqCampaignId=3052" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/Outbreaks/ucm610827.htm?utm_campaign=Outbreak_Salmonella_Mbandaka_Honey_Smacks_06142018&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua&elqTrackId=e77671e668e844959c08d8b13ea89918&elq=c9448dc008604559a36ec66570293a2d&elqaid=3926&elqat=1&elqCampaignId=3052
