NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Kellogg's is voluntarily recalling some of its Honey Smacks cereal.

The company says the cereal has been linked to dozens of cases of salmonella.

Seventy-three people have been infected in 31 states, including in New York.

The recall affects 15.3-ounce and 23-ounce packages with best used by dates from June 14, 2018 through June 14, 2019.

Kelloggs says the best thing to do is to throw out the cereal and to contact them for a refund.

Symptoms of salmonella include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. 

According to the CDC, it can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
