Kellogs copy

The Inspectorate of Public Health, Social Development and Labor informs that Kellogg’s company in the United States has issued a recall for Kellogg’s Honey Smacks Cereals.

This recall has been issued following indications that the bacteria Salmonella Mbandaka has been detected in some brands of Kellogg’s cereal and has been linked to multistate outbreaks in 31 states as of last week.

The Kellogg’s company is advising consumers to throw away cereal boxes with the following denomination:

Name: Honey Smacks Cereal

Best by date: June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019

Size of boxes: 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce

The Kellogg’s company also advises further to thoroughly wash any containers used to store the cereal.

Similar products have been distributed to Curacao and Aruba.

The Salmonella bacteria can cause illness within 12 to 72 hours after exposure by ingestion.

Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps. “Most people recover within a week, but sometimes it may last longer and be more severe,” according to C.D.C.

Please consult your GP if needed.

The Inspectorate has not received any complaint related to any Kellogg’s product yet.
