Kellogg Issues A Recall For Eggo Waffles Due To Listeria Contamination


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. Though the company received no reports of illnesses, they discovered their line of Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles was contaminated with the bacteria listeria during routine testing. In other words, you might want to L’eggo your Eggo.

Symptoms of listeria include a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and plenty of other awful ways to start your day. It can spread to the gastrointestinal tract and the nervous system if left untreated, and can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in expectant women. Your gut may be strong enough to handle it, but listeria infections are more serious in children. Yes, even ones who can flip vans with their minds.

The good news is they caught it before anyone got sick, but the bad news is they didn’t catch it early enough to keep them off shelves at (potentially) your supermarket. The recall urges people to be on the lookout for Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles in 10-count packs with “Best if used by” dates of November 21, 2017 and November 22, 2017, or confirm with the UPC code on the label. Kellogg urges any unlucky consumers affected to throw them out, and call 1-800-962-1413 for a refund, or visit the website. As for parents who are unaffected, it’s the one time you can be happy your kid hates grains.
