It’s a real shame the tainted cereal coming out of the Kellogg’s factory is Honey Smacks and not Frosted Flakes, because “They’rrrrrrrre Gross!” is the stuff headline dreams are made of. But it’s the puffed wheat vulvas you’ve got to watch out for.
Kellogg ‘s announced yesterday that they were voluntarily recalling certain boxes of Honey Smacks due to a possible health risk. The recall comes after the CDC and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported 73 people in 31 different states who likely got sick from the cereal (with 24 of those that ended up in the hospital). The alleged culprit: salmonella.
Luckily, the recall is limited to two specific UPC codes. You can contact them for a refund.
PRODUCT RECALL ALERT: Kellogg’s is recalling Honey Smacks cereal in 15.3 and 23 oz packages with UPC codes 3800039103, 3800014810 due to the possible presence of Salmonella. https://t.co/LVqujYqUpK pic.twitter.com/8eS6uB6YgM

If you’ve got a box of Honey Smacks at home in either a 15.3 or 23 oz package with a UPC code readong 3800039103 or 3800014810, then you might want to dump it in the trash and ask for your money back. To be fair, I feel like that’s the most common response after opening a box of Honey Smacks.
Honey Smacks are distributed throughout the U.S., Mexico, Costa Rica, Guam, and the Caribbean. Kellogg’s says they’re investigating a third-party manufacturer that makes the cereal. Currently, no one has died from the Honey Smacks salmonella outbreak. Kellogg’s doesn’t say how the cereal got infected with salmonella. But come on, it’s obvious. Frogs are a notorious carrier of salmonella. Clearly Dig’Em was in that factory with his slimy hands all over the cereal before it went out. I hope Dig’Em has a good lawyer.
