U.S. salmonella outbreak: 'Do not eat Honey Smacks,' shoppers told

A sign hangs outside the Kellogg's factory near Manchester, Britain March 7, 2016.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal is still being offered for sale despite being recalled in June. At least 30 of the 100 people have been hospitalized; no deaths have been reported, the CDC said. Over 70 cases had already been confirmed and linked to the cereal, and Kellogg's was in the middle of a massive recall to get the product pulled from shelves.

"The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product, " the FDA said on its website. "The public is urged to report any product being offered for sale". Pennsylvania (8), MA (7), and California (6) have the most cases, but illnesses are widespread and affecting all ages. Infections continued to climb, despite efforts by the FDA and CDC to warn consumers and retailers that the cereal has been recalled and should not be consumed or sold.
