The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 27 more cases of salmonella poisoning linked back to Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, CNN reported.

They issued a "do not eat" warning.

This brings the total number of cases to 100 in 33 states including Alabama and Tennessee.

There are no reports of any deaths linked to contaminated cereal, only illness.

Despite a recall of the cereal last month, and retailers being told not to sell it, the Food and Drug Administration released the following statement after learning it is still being sold at some stores.

"The FDA has become aware that recalled Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal are still being offered for sale. All Honey Smacks cereal was recalled in June 2018. Retailers cannot legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal."

Anyone who sees Honey Smacks being sold by a retailer is asked to contact the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator.
