PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – The RI Department of Health advised consumers Thursday that Kellogg Company is voluntarily recalling packages of Honey Smacks cereal due to potential health risks.
Kellogg said they are recalling 15.3 oz and 23 oz packages of Honey Smack cereal due to concerns the packages may have been exposed to Salmonella.
The Kellogg Company launched an investigation with the third-party manufacturer that produces Honey Smacks Cereal after being contacted by the FDA and the CDC regarding reported illnesses.
The RIDOH said there have been 75 cases of Salmonella in 31 states, including two cases in Rhode Island in association with the investigation that led to the cereal’s recall.
According to the RIDOH, the cereal affected by the recall can be identified by a “best if used by date” of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019, and by a UPC code, located on the bottom of the box, of 3800039103 or 3800014810.
