BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The CDC is warning people not to eat any Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal, as it has been linked to a national Salmonella outbreak that has sickened 100 people in 33 states.

The organization said that people should avoid the cereal "regardless of package size or best-by date." The cereal was recalled voluntarily by the Kellogg's on June 14.

The CDC said that no retailers should be selling the cereal--and for those who did buy it, even if some of the cereal has been eaten and nobody has gotten sick, the rest should be thrown away or turned in for a refund. They've also urged people to thoroughly wash their counters using soap if the cereal was in their home.

Thirty people have been hospitalized, but no deaths have yet been reported.
