The recall issued by Kellogg's remains unchanged, and affects both the large and small box sizes of Honey Smacks cereal with best-if-used-by dates between June 14th, 2018 and June 14th, 2019.

"Retailers should not sell or serve Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal", the CDC says. "The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product".

The number of people with salmonella linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal has grown to 100 across the U.S., prompting the CDC to issue a blunt warning via tweet: "Do not eat this cereal". The first cases of illness in this outbreak began with symptoms on March 3, and the most recent individuals began feeling ill on July 2. About 450 people die in the United States each year from salmonella.

Two people in Kentucky have become ill with this strain of Salmonella. The CDC now advises that anyone who has purchased the cereal return it for a refund or throw it out completely regardless of an expiration date.

Boris Johnson quits as British foreign minister
Rumours have swirled over possible further resignations but experts said May appeared to have weathered the crisis for now. The US president said it was "up to the people" whether or not Theresa May remained as prime minister.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urged consumers: "Do not eat this cereal".

Additionally, if you stored the tainted cereal in any kind of a reusable container you'll need to wash and sanitize that container before you use it again.

Altogether, the CDC says, 100 people have gotten sick and 30 were hospitalized. While most recover within a week, some illnesses can last longer and be more severe.

Symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps and typically present 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria.
