  • Salmonella 101 What you need to know

A salmonella outbreak linked to a popular Kellogg's cereal has infected 100 people, the United States' Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday (July 12).

A CDC statement Thursday advised consumers not to eat any of the cereal regardless of package size or "best by" date. "The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product. Ill people in this outbreak reported this cereal more often than any other cereals or food items", according to the CDC. Over 70 cases had already been confirmed and linked to the cereal, and Kellogg's was in the middle of a massive recall to get the product pulled from shelves. Pennsylvania (8), MA (7), and California (6) have the most cases, but illnesses are widespread and affecting all ages.

"Retailers can not legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal", it wrote.

I'll have to look at it. "I did hear about it", Hinch told reporters. "It if turns out it was at me, we'll talk about it". Hinch took him out of the game after he allowed three hits to three straight batters to start the inning.

Florida and Colorado are the latest states to report illnesses as part of the outbreak, bringing the total number of states affected to 33.

The agency has said that it has found salmonella stains in unopened and leftover samples of Honey Smacks. A case count map breaks down the location and prevalence of cases, the first of which was reported in early March. "No deaths have been reported", the agency reported on its website.

Symptoms usually begin within a week after exposure to the bacteria. While most recover within a week, some illnesses can last longer and be more severe. Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.
