MINNEAPOLIS 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 said Saturday.

Officials in Minnesota are investigating whether a case in that state might be linked to the cereals produced by the Minneapolis-based company, the state health department said.

Malt-O-Meal voluntarily recalled its unsweetened Puffed Rice and Puffed Wheat cereals April 5 after finding salmonella contamination during routine testing. The affected bags were produced in the past 12 months in Northfield.

"The Malt-O-Meal company has been extremely cooperative in this investigation and has done the right thing to protect the public's health," Heidi Kassenborg, director of the dairy and food inspection division at the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, said in a statement.

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

Symptoms of salmonella infection include nausea, vomiting, fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps. It can be life-threatening for people with poor health or weakened immune systems, including young children and the elderly.

Malt-O-Meal bag cereals are a much better value than name brand boxed cereals.

Unless of course they are ladden with salmonella!

I once ran into Count Chocula. He and Frankenberry were hanging out at the General Mills Club. To be truthful, they're both assholes once they get a little milk in their system.

I've heard that about the two of them. Celebrities are so fake.

How in the hell does this get contaminated with Salmonella. Stories like this make me wonder what is going on with our manufacturing practices of late.
