Recall on puffed cereals

At least 23 people in 14 states have been sickened by the same strain of salmonella found in two breakfast cereals recalled by Malt-O-Meal, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Saturday.

Malt-O-Meal voluntarily recalled its unsweetened Puffed Rice and Puffed Wheat cereals April 5 after finding salmonella contamination during routine testing.

Three people have been hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The FDA said the recalled products were distributed nationally under the Malt-O-Meal brand name and private labels, including Acme, America's Choice, Food Club, Giant, Jewel, Laura Lynn, Pathmark, Shaw's, ShopRite, Tops and Weis Quality.

As of Friday, no Washington state cases had been reported to the CDC. For more information: tinyurl.com/4ejaop.
