Though Kellogg recalled all Honey Smacks from shelves in June when they were linked to a salmonella outbreak, the FDA said Thursday that it has received reports of some stores still selling the cereal.

One hundred people in 33 states have been sickened by a salmonella outbreak linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, the CDC reported Thursday.

"Do not eat this cereal", the agency declared on Twitter.

"Do not eat Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal of any size package or with any "best if used by" date", it wrote."Do not eat this cereal", the CDC said bluntly in a tweet. It's still not clear how the contamination might have occurred. Infections continued to climb, despite efforts by the FDA and CDC to warn consumers and retailers that the cereal has been recalled and should not be consumed or sold. A case count map breaks down the location and prevalence of cases, the first of which was reported in early March. More information on the recall can be found on the FDA's website.

Gauke said. "The challenge is all very well for people to say I wouldn't do this". He said Britain was heading for a "semi-Brexit".

Salmonella symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps within about 12 to 72 hours of exposure. Healthy individuals typically recover in four to seven days with treatment.

The agency is urging consumers to avoid Honey Smacks, a sugary puffed wheat cereal which has been the subject of a recall by the company since mid-June.

The CDC says at least 30 of the people infected in the outbreak have been hospitalized.
