The centers for disease control and prevention says more than 70 people have gotten sick in 31 states.

According to the CDC, use or consumption of products contaminated with Salmonella may result in serious illness.

The implicated product, Honey Smacks (15.3 oz), has a best before date from Jun 14, 2018 to Jun 14, 2019.

The FDA is advising you discard and not eat any of the cereal regardless of size or "best by" dates.

NY has reported seven cases, while California, Pennsylvania and MA have had five cases each.

The UPC code for the recalled 15.3-ounce cereal is 38000 39103, while the 23.0-ounce one is 38000 14810. This date can be found at the top of the cereal box.

The Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA) has advised that while a voluntary recall was recently issued by Hanschell Inniss on Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has now expanded that recall to include aa Kellogg's Honey Smacks.

"Check your home for the recalled cereal and throw it away or return it to the place of purchase for a refund".

Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhoea, fever, and abdominal cramps. The symptoms begin anywhere between 12 and 72 hours after exposure, according to CNN. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.
