Perhaps in an elaborate attempt to teach the Stranger Things kids a lesson about shoplifting, Eggo voluntarily recalled 10,000 cases of waffles in 25 states, Kellogg Co. announced Monday — as if Eleven hasn’t been through enough.

Symptoms of listeria include a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and plenty of other awful ways to start your day.
