Uh-oh, l'eggo that Eggo!
Kellogg announced Monday that about 10,000 cases of its Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles may be contaminated with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. The company is voluntarily recalling the product in 25 states, from Maine to Wyoming.
Listeriosis (the infection caused by listeria) is characterized by high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. It can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children and miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. It's also dangerous to the elderly and anyone with a weaked immune system.
While this isn't great news, no illnesses have yet been reported. "We are taking this action as part of our commitment to the health and safety of the people who eat our foods," reads a post on the Eggo Facebook page.
The recall is limited to the following products:
Kellogg’s Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles, 10-countUPC Code: 38000 40370Better if Used Before Date: Nov 21 2017 and Nov 22, 2017
No other Eggo products are impacted by this recall.
Kelloggs is asking those who have purchased an affected product to discard it and contact the company for a full refund at 1-800-962-1413 or by email.
