However, the FDA is asking that consumers avoid purchasing or consuming any Honey Smacks cereal for the time being - regardless of the dates on the box - out of an abundance of caution.
Though Kellogg recalled all Honey Smacks from shelves in June when they were linked to a salmonella outbreak, the FDA said Thursday that it has received reports of some stores still selling the cereal.
After the outbreak was discovered, Kellogg issued a recall in June of packages with "best if used by dates" ranging from June 14, 20018, through June 14, 2019.
Illnesses were first reported on March 3, and the most recent case was found on July 2. Tests also confirmed the strain in samples of leftover Honey Smacks cereal from the homes of sickened people in Montana, New York, and Utah. "The FDA will continue to monitor this situation closely and follow up with retailers as we become aware of recalled products being offered for sale". "Thoroughly wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again, to remove harmful germs that could contaminate other food".
Rockets determined to sign Carmelo Anthony
Those two teams have emerged as top candidates to sign Anthony when he and the Thunder part ways in the coming days. Remember, the Thunder still has until the end of the season to shave down a tax bill approaching $150 million.
In June, Kellogg said it was investigating the third-party manufacturer that produces Honey Smacks after it was contacted by the FDA and CDC about the illness.
Some cases turn so severe that patients need to be hospitalized.
Symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps and typically present 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria. Healthy individuals typically recover in four to seven days with treatment.
