Although Kellogg's recalled the cereals on June 14, the FDA reports that recalled packages of Honey Smacks cereal are still being offered for sale.

If you see Honey Smacks being sold at a store, you are asked to call the FDA consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

The Food and Drug Administration says retails still can not legally sell Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal following a recall. Interviews with ill people allowed investigators to identify Honey Smacks as a possible source of the illnesses, triggering the recall.

At least 30 of the 100 have been hospitalised, while no deaths have been reported, the CDC said. The first cases of illness in this outbreak began with symptoms on March 3, and the most recent individuals began feeling ill on July 2. No deaths have been reported, the CDC said.

The statement said salmonella strains had been found in both unopened and leftover samples of Honey Smacks at several locations. At that time, 73 people in 31 states had confirmed cases of salmonella poisoning.

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

Use or consumption of products contaminated with salmonella can result in serious illness, including fatal infections, fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, especially for young, frail or elderly people, according to the CDC.

The CDC says that regardless of expiration date, the cereal should be thrown away or returned to a retailer for a refund.
