A popular Kellogg's breakfast cereal has been linked with an outbreak of salmonella poisoning after more than 100 people fell ill.
In total, the 130 people who have been infected spanned 36 states and 34 of those people have been hospitalized.
The FDA urged consumers to "check their homes and throw away any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal" and retailers to discard recalled lots because of the chance of salmonella contamination.
Some retailers have continued selling the cereal, despite the months-old recall, the CDC says. Public health agencies have not confirmed any deaths. On July 12, 2018 the FDA and CDC updated their web posting to include additional cases linked to this outbreak.
The agency says it found salmonella in samples of Honey Smacks, which has been subject to a voluntary recall by Kellogg since mid-June.

Neither government officials nor the Kellogg Co. have released the name of the contractor that produced the recalled cereal for Kellogg.
The cereal in question has a "BEST if Used By Date" of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019. "Check your home for it and throw it away or return it to the place of purchase for a refund", the CDC advised.
You shouldn't be seeing Honey Smacks on grocery shelves. It's is an oval-shaped, sweetened puffed wheat cereal with a golden brown color.
However, the contaminated cereal is still being sold in some locations, CDC said, citing the US Food and Drug Administration. Sick people should tell their doctors about their possible exposure to Salmonella because special lab tests are required to properly diagnose the infections.
Salmonella is a bacteria that can make people sick with diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. It can also produce serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
