Honey Smacks Recalled; Kellogg’s, FDA Report Illnesses


Kellogg Co. has announced a major recall affecting an estimated 1.3 million cases of its Honey Smacks, citing concerns of Salmonella contamination. Illnesses have been reported across more than 30 states.

Details of the Kellogg’s Honey Smacks Recall

According to reports, the recall was issued Thursday after preliminary evidence linked the cereal to a Salmonella outbreak. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says there have been more than 70 injuries reported across 31 states, including 24 reports of hospitalization.

No deaths have been reported in connection with the recalled Honey Smacks cereal, but the FDA is working with Kellogg’s to get potentially contaminated cereal removed from the market immediately. The FDA is also inspecting the third-party manufacturer that produces Honey Smacks for other potential hazards.

The recall affects 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce packages of Honey Smacks with “use by” dates of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019. At this time, no other Kellogg products are impacted by the recall.
