"Do not eat any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, regardless of package size or best-by date", the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advised consumers this week.

Kellogg's first issued a product recall on 14 June that warned of possible salmonella contamination.

Common effects of salmonella is the result of a fever, cramps, or diarrhea within 12 to 72 hours of being exposed to the bacteria. The CDC said illnesses after June 19 may not have been reported yet because it takes an average of two to four weeks between the time a person becomes ill and when their illness is reported.

The recalled products had use by dates of June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019 and involved the cereals' 15.3 ounce and 23 oz. packages.

The FDA is sending out this reminder because it has learned some retailers are still selling the cereal.

Chelsea was beaten to the signing of Romelu Lukaku by Manchester United and then Fernando Llorente by Tottenham, for example. The Blues were unable to defend their title, finishing fifth last season and missing out on Champions League.

Meanwhile, the number of sick people continues to increase.

The CDC says 100 salmonella infections in 33 states have now been linked to Honey Smacks. Customers should either throw away the product or may return their box of cereal to a store for a full refund.

Laboratory testing also identified the outbreak strain in samples of leftover Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal collected from the homes of ill people in Montana, New York, and Utah, the FDA reported.

Most people recover without treatment, however.

Public health officials have renewed their advice to consumers who have eaten of handled the recalled Honey Smacks to seek medical attention if they develop symptoms of Salmonella infection immediately.
