According to the FDA, some stores were illegally selling the cereal into July. People have become sick in 19 states since the last report, bringing the total of affected states to 36, according to USA Today.

A popular Kellogg's breakfast cereal has been linked with an outbreak of salmonella poisoning after more than 100 people fell ill. "Honey Smacks. If they're still in your cabinet, toss them!" the agency tweeted on Tuesday. The agency also refuses to name the manufacturer serving the cold cereal giant.

Thirty-four people have been hospitalized.

Delaware, Minnesota and ME are the latest states to join the list of 36 states where illnesses have been reported as part of the outbreak.

In the earlier stages of the outbreak, the CDC was recommending that consumers avoid cartons of the cereal with a specific "best if used by" date range, but that has since been dropped. Interviews with ill people allowed health partners to identify Kellogg's Honey Smacks cereal as a possible source of the illnesses.

However, people in high-risk groups, which include children, older adults, pregnant women and anyone with a compromised immune system can develop serious complications which require hospitalization.
