The CDC says that 30 of the 100 people infected have been hospitalized due to the infection. No deaths have been reported.

Illnesses were first reported on March 3.

Anyone who may still have the Honey Smack cereal in their homes is urged to throw it away. If the cereal was in a container, the CDC advises that those containers be thoroughly washed with soap and water.
