Updates from the CDC and FDA say Honey Smacks of all package sizes and best-by dates should be thrown out.

A sign hangs outside the Kellogg's factory near Manchester, Britain March 7, 2016.

The FDA said on Thursday it would follow up with retailers to prevent the sale of the product.

The cases have been reported in 33 states, including New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, California, Maryland and Virginia.

The statement said salmonella strains had been found in both unopened and leftover samples of Honey Smacks at several locations.

The Food and Drug Administration said about 1.3 million cases of the popular Kellogg's cereal, described as a sweetened puffed wheat product, had been recalled from more than 30 states last month, Reuters reported.

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

Manafort faces charges of tax fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, witness tampering and failing to register as a foreign agent. Hull said that when jail officials learned Manafort was communicating by email, his attorneys were told to stop the practice.

But efforts to recall the product were not successful. It takes on average two to four weeks between when a person becomes sick and when their illness is reported.

The agency is urging consumers to check their homes for the recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks.

Additionally, if you stored the tainted cereal in any kind of a reusable container you'll need to wash and sanitize that container before you use it again.

"Ill people range in age from less than one year to 95, with a median age of 57".

"All Honey Smacks cereal was recalled in June 2018".

Symptoms usually begin within a week after exposure to the bacteria.

Most people recover without treatment, however. Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection.
