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.

Back in mid-June the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a bulletin warning consumers that Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal could potentially be contaminated with Salmonella.

"Do not eat any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, regardless of package size or best-by date", it said. The most recent of the illnesses was reported to the CDC on July 2, 18 days after the first recall notice. It takes on average two to four weeks between when a person becomes sick and when their illness is reported. No deaths have been reported.

The CDC and the FDA are working with state and local health officials across the country to investigate the source of the contamination. At that time, 73 people in 31 states had confirmed cases of salmonella poisoning. Samples of the facility's environment and the product collected during the FDA's inspection match the outbreak strain of salmonella mbandaka, the agency said.

Of those victims who were interviewed about what they ate, the most cited cereal was Honey Smacks. Among 77 with available information, 30 (39%) have been hospitalized, the FDA said.

Right now there are no other Kellogg products impacted by the recall.

Salmonella symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps within about 12 to 72 hours of exposure.

If you store cereal that looks like Kellogg's Honey Smacks in a container without the packaging and don't remember the brand or type, throw it away. Although most people recover without being treated, some may need to be hospitalized for severe diarrhea.
