While sick with the flu, I let slide a recall of cereal contaminated with salmonella. How Puffed Rice and Puffed Wheat cereals could become contaminated with salmonella is something of a mystery to me, but reports of illnesses continue to spread two weeks into the recall.
At least 21 cases of salmonella agona in 13 states have been reported, according to All American Patriots . So far, the mainstream media, beyond TV News, has not made much effort to cover this recall.
The cereal, which is being recalled by Malt-O-Meal , is sold under a variety of brand names and packaging styles. See the link above for details on recall specifics: there are hundreds of UPC codes listed.
