MADISON, Wis. - The federal Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating an outbreak of salmonella mbandaka infections that officials say may be linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal.
The CDC said on Thursday that 73 people from 31 states, including one person from Wisconsin, have gotten sick, likely from eating the puffed wheat cereal. Though there have been 24 hospitalizations, the FDA says no deaths have occurred.
The Kellogg Company has voluntarily recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, which had been distributed across the United States.
The FDA says consumers who have symptoms of salmonella infection should contact their health care provider to report their symptoms and receive care. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.Infection usually lasts four to seven days, the FDA says.
