Investigators have laboratory confirmation that the outbreak strain of Salmonella Mbandaka is in the manufacturing facility and in unopened packages of the cereal. "All Honey Smacks cereal was recalled in June 2018".

The company voluntarily recalled the cereal last month, but the FDA says it's apparently still on grocery shelves and in kitchen cupboards, reports CNN.

The FDA is sending out this reminder because it has learned some retailers are still selling the cereal. Florida has two people sick.

The CDC says that regardless of expiration date, the cereal should be thrown away or returned to a retailer for a refund. But the cereal is still being sold in some stores.

More than a million packets of the product were recalled by the manufacturer Kellogg's in June after 100 people were infected in 33 states.

According to the FDA, the ages of those affected range from less than one year to 95 (median 57 years) and 68% of cases are female. "This takes an average of 2 to 4 weeks". No deaths have been reported.
