Kellogg’s Honey Smacks Cereal Recall
June 15th, 2018
Foster’s Food Fair – IGA would like to announce that the Kellogg Company has issued a voluntary recall on 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of Kellogg’s® Honey Smacks® cereal (with code dates listed below) because these products have the potential presence of Salmonella.
Kellogg launched an investigation with the third-party manufacturer who produces Honey Smacks immediately after being contacted by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding reported illnesses.
According to the CDC, use or consumption of products contaminated with Salmonella may result in serious illness. It can also produce serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most persons recover without treatment. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses.
Foster’s IGA has been affected by this recall, and product has been removed from the shelves.
The products affected are as follows:
|Description (Retail)||UPC Code||Size||BEST if Used By Date|
|Honey Smacks (with limited distribution outside the U.S.)||3800039103||15.3 oz||JUN 14, 2018 through JUN 14, 2019|
|Honey Smacks||3800014810||23 oz||JUN 14, 2018 through JUN 14, 2019|
No other Kellogg’s branded products are included within this recall.
Customers should check the UPC’s on Kellogg’s Honey Smacks products in their homes to be sure none of the affected product has been purchased. We encourage all customers who have purchased this product from any of our Foster’s IGA locations to return the affected product for a full refund. Please discontinue use of any affected product.
