Popular Cereal Making Over 100 Sick
It seems that every week there are two or three more foods that are being recalled. This time it's an extension to a popular recalled cereal that continues to make more and more people sick. Back in June, Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal was recalled after over one hundred people became very ill. Now another thirty people have come down with salmonella type symptoms. According to News Channel 13, health officials are warning consumers that some stores are still selling Honey Smacks despite the recall.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that the illnesses have reached one hundred thirty cases and have expanded to thirty six states including New York. There were thirty four people who were so sick, they needed to be hospitalized. You are encouraged to check and see if you have Honey Smacks at home and if you do to throw them away or return them to the place you bought them from.
Symptoms of the illness include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps. If you were contaminated, you will get sick within twelve hours and up to three days after ingesting it.
