Eggo waffles recalled by Kellogg after possible listeria outbreak

Kellogg announced yesterday on their website that they're recalling 10,000 cases of Eggo waffles due to a possible contamination of listeria monocytogenes. The recall affects 25 states - including Illinois, Missouri and New York - and it specifically names the Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles.

Recall details

Kellogg says there haven't been any reports of people getting sick, but after routine testing, the company discovered the tie to the harmful bacteria. No other variations of Eggo have been found to be affected by listeria.

The containers of Eggos affected have expiration dates from Nov. 21 to 22 of 2017, and are the 12.3 ounce, 10-count versions. The company asks those who have purchased the affected Eggos to throw them out and contact Kellogg to receive a refund. Consumers can contact the company at 1-800-962-1413 or visit https://www.kelloggs.com/en_US/contact-us.html.

Listeria's effects

Listeria is treatable with antibiotics, but is especially dangerous to children, elderly and those with compromised immune systems. The symptoms of a listeria infection include a fever, serious headache and abdominal pain; pregnant women who are infected can miscarry or suffer a stillbirth.

The infection can spread throughout the gastrointestinal tract and to the nervous system. As with any other serious infection, it can lead to death if untreated. Anyone with these symptoms is encouraged to contact their doctor.

Kellogg has recalled other products and has been criticized in the past. Listeria was also present at an Atlanta plant in 2009, and in 2019, the FDA complained to the company about its safety standards that weren't up to the organization's standards.

What if you've been affected?

Eggo waffles are nearly ubiquitous with busy families with children in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Because of this, it's possible for many families to have come into contact with the contaminated items. If you or a loved one experiences severe effects from a tainted product, you may have grounds to file for damages or product liability litigation for injuries or worsened condition.
