PHILIPSBURG:—The Inspectorate of Public Health, Social Development and Labor informs that Kellog’s company in the United States has issued a recall for Kellog’s Honey Smacks Cereals.
This recall has been issued following indications that the bacteria Salmonella Mbandaka has been detected in some brands of Kellog’s cereal and has been linked to multistate outbreaks in 31 states as of last week.
