Kellogg has voluntarily recalled its Honey Smacks cereal due to a possible Salmonella risk.

The recalled cereal includes the 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. boxes with "BEST if Used By" dates between June 14, 2018 and June 14, 2019.

The company said it launched an investigation into the third-party manufacturer that produces Honey Smacks immediately after being contacted by the Food & Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control about reported illnesses.

Kellogg said none of its other products are impacted by this recall.

According to the CDC, use or consumption of products contaminated with Salmonella can result in serious illness, or even death in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella may experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Anyone who purchased a potentially contaminated product should discard it and can contact Kellogg for a full refund.
