There's a new salmonella outbreak that you need you to be aware of especially if you have this cereal in your pantry. Do you have Honey Smacks in your house? You need to toss them in the garbage ASAP.

There's been a multistate outbreak and so far 100 people have become sick with 30 needing to be hospitalized. 

If you are out and about and see this cereal on shelves, the FDA wants to know because retailers were supposed to stop selling it earlier this week. 

When I was a kid I used to get those 10 packs of cereal boxes to have for my breakfast. I would eat all of the different kinds, but I never liked Honey Smacks. They just had a gross taste to them.
