Careful with your Honey Smacks. They may give you salmonella

Honey Smacks cereal               Kellogg Co

- More than 70 people in 31 states have fallen ill with salmonella as a result of eating Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, according to the FDA and CDC.

The Kellogg Company has since recalled 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce packages of Honey Smacks cereal. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had later linked the illness to pre-cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and mixed fruit in eight states.

The Food and Drug Administration is now advising consumers to throw away any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal regardless of size or "best by if used" dates.

Health officials have identified Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal as the likely source of the outbreak, based on epidemiological evidence. There are no reported deaths at this time.

In addition, Del Monte is recalling small veggie trays that include broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery and dill dip distributed in IL and in, the FDA said in a statement.

There has been one case in Utah so far, according to the CDC. The FDA warned consumers to avoid the cereal completely.

NY has reported seven cases, while California, Pennsylvania and MA have had five cases each. More recent infections may not be known yet because it takes from two to four weeks for reporting of a salmonella-caused illness, the agency said. "And we've worked with the company to immediately initiate a recall of this product".

People infected with salmonella can experience severe illness, though symptoms may vary. Outside of the United States, the cereal was distributed in Aruba, CuraƧao, St. Maarten, the Bahamas, Barbados, Tortola, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Panama, and Tahiti. Most people don't require treatment, but the infection can lead to death in some cases.
