Pritzker Hageman law firm Salmonella lawyers are investigating illnesses associated with the Kellogg’s Honey Smack cereal recall. Contact them for a free consultation if you have been sickened.
The Kellogg Company has announced a recall of Honey Smacks cereal after being alerted of illnesses by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Consumers who have the recalled product at home should not eat it.
The recall includes 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. boxes with “best before dates of JUN 14, 2018 through JUN 14, 2019. The recalled 15.3 oz-packages have the UPC 3800039103 and the recalled 23 oz- packages have the UPC 3800014810. No other Kellog products are impacted by this recall.
The Kellogg Company says it “launched an investigation with the third-party manufacturer who produces Honey Smacks immediately after being contacted by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding reported illnesses.”
The Salmonella lawyers at the national food safety law firm Pritzker Hageman have launched an investigation of their own. The Bad Bug Team at Pritzker Hageman has represented clients in every major food poisoning outbreak over the last 20 years. They know that food companies are supposed to use reasonable care to ensure the safety of the food and how to hold companies accountable when those consumer protections fail.
The CDC and FDA have not yet released information on how many people have been sickened, which states are involved or which stores sold the recalled products. Consumers should check products they have at home and consult recall information before purchasing Honey Smacks cereal.
Salmonella Infections: What to Watch for
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection usually develop within six to 72 hours after exposure and last about a week. They include fever, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain or cramps and vomiting. Young children are at a higher risk than any other age group for developing Salmonella infections. Other high-risk groups include elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. A small percentage of cases can become life-threatening if the infection moves from the intestines to the bloodstream. These cases require hospitalization. See a doctor immediately if your Salmonella symptoms worsen after a few days.
