News – “Not even Honey Smacks are safe from the salmonella outbreak” – Put the bowl down, leave the milk in the fridge, and slowly back away from that box of Honey Smacks.

The Kellogg’s cereal is just the latest of foods linked to a major salmonella outbreak that’s spread, according to the FDA, “across more than 30 states.”

On Thursday, Kellogg’s announced that Honey Smacks cereal boxes labeled with a “use by” date between June 14, 2018 and June 14, 2019 are included in the recall. You can also check the UPC codes found at the bottom of the cereal box. If your package has codes of 38000 39103 or 38000 14810, then it’s gotta go. 

Thankfully, work has already begun to control the contamination. 

“The FDA has already initiated an inspection of the facility that we believe is linked to the Salmonella contamination,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlie said in a statement. “And we’ve worked with the company to immediately initiate a recall of this product. We’ll continue to work with Kellogg’s to identify not only the source of the contamination, but the actions needed to prevent this kind of outbreak from happening again.”

I mean nobody should be really eating Honey Smacks to begin with in 2018. It took me awhile to realize it but yea in the cereal landscape Honey Smacks are definitely a bottom tier cereal, they taste like the projects…yea I said it. Leave it where it belongs.
