The Centers for Disease Control is warning customers not to eat Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal after the breakfast was linked to 100 salmonella infections nationwide.

The FDA said on Thursday it would follow up with retailers to prevent the sale of the product. The Kellogg Company recalled the cereal on June 14, 2018. The most recent of the illnesses was reported to the CDC on July 2, 18 days after the first recall notice.

The CDC said at least 30 of the people infected in the outbreak have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported in the latest outbreak.

The CDC warns the public not to eat any Honey Smacks cereal from any size package and with any "best if used by" date. At that time, 73 people in 31 states had confirmed cases of salmonella poisoning.

Two states were also added to the outbreak list - Florida and Colorado.

The statement said salmonella strains had been found in both unopened and leftover samples of Honey Smacks at several locations.

Kellogg in June recalled an estimated 1.3 million cases of its Honey Smacks cereal from more than 30 USA states due to the potential for Salmonella contamination.

Symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps and typically present 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria.

People who purchased those products should discard them and contact Kellogg Co. for a full refund.
