10,000 Cases of Eggo Waffles Recalled in 25 States

10,000 Cases of Eggo Waffles Recalled in 25 States

Kellogg Co. is recalling an estimated 10,000 cases of Eggo’s Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles due to concerns over listeria exposure. According to their recall statement, Kellogg says that routine testing confirmed a “potential for contamination.” Since the recall notification, there has been no reported incidents of illness and it does not impact any other Eggo products.

This is the second time Kellogg has recalled their products based on a listeria scare. In 2009, the FDA found listeria bacteria at an Atlanta plant. Listeria bacteria can cause serious and often fatal infections in young children, elderly people, or any individuals who have a weak immune system. Symptoms associated with listeria consumption include high fever, headaches, stiffness, and abdominal pain. Listeria infection can also lead to miscarriages and still births among pregnant women.

The company asks that those who recently purchased the 10-count, 12.3 ounce containers of the product check the expiration date – waffles that expire between the dates of Nov. 21 and Nov. 22, 2017 should be discarded. Kellogg is offering refunds for those affected by the recall.
