PHILIPSBURG–The Inspectorate of Public Health, Social Development and Labour announced on Monday that the Kellogg Company in the United States has issued a recall for Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereals.

According to Health Inspector General Dr. Earl Best, this recall has been issued following indications that the bacteria Salmonella Mbandaka has been detected in some brands of Kellogg’s cereal and has been linked to outbreaks in 31 states as of last week.
The Kellogg’s company is advising consumers to throw away cereal boxes with the denomination: Name – Honey Smacks Cereal, Best by date – June 14, 2018, through June 14, 2019, and size of boxes – 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce.
