  • Check your home for the recalled cereal and throw it away, or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
    • Even if some of the cereal was eaten and no one got sick, throw the rest of it away or return it for a refund.
  • If you store cereal that looks like Kellogg’s Honey Smacks in another container without the packaging and don’t remember the brand or type, throw it away.
    • Kellogg’s Honey Smacks is a sweetened puffed wheat cereal.
    • Thoroughly wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again, to remove harmful germs that could contaminate other food.
