Your child’s breakfast is about to get complicated–at least, if they eat Eggo waffles (like El from “Stranger Things”). Yesterday, the Kellogg Company issued a recall for 10,000 cases of Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles due to listeria concerns.
The Michigan-based company claimed there have been no reports of illness so far. The possible listeria contamination was discovered during routine testing, according to a company statement. As of now, no other products are impacted by the recall, which covers 25 states where the product is distributed to customers and retailers.
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria spread through eating contaminated food, which can cause a serious infection and sometimes result in death in children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems.
If you buy Eggos, the affected waffles are the 10 count, 12.3 ounce containers of the product with expiration dates between Nov. 21 and Nov. 22, 2017. If these are the ones you bought, please discard them and contact the company for a refund. To do so, consumers can call 1-800-962-1413 or visit the company online at kelloggs.com/en_US/contact-us.html.
