Before you reach for your freezer tomorrow morning to grab your favorite morning waffles, you should know that 10,000 cases of Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles are being voluntarily recalled in 25 states, CNN reports. Kellogg believes they could be contaminated with the bacteria listeria.
So far there have been no reports of illnesses or problems with routine tests.
The other Eggo products are not affected by the recall.
Listeria can seriously adversely affect the health of children, the frail or elderly, or anyone with a weak immune system.
High fever, severe headache, stiffness, abdominal pain and diarrhea are all symptoms of the infection.
Miscarriages and stillbirths are possible in pregnant women.
Listeria is spread through areas of the gastrointestinal tract and the nervous system, and some infections can cause death.
Forunately, it is treated with antibiotics. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your physician.
Kellogg's Eggo brand had a previous recall in 2009 at their Atlanta plant where they made the Eggo Buttermilk Waffles. The FDA cracked down on them and criticized their safety standards.
If you have these waffles, here's what you need to know: They're available in a 10-count pack with "Best if used by" dates of November 21, 2017, and November 22, 2017, which can be found on the side of the package. You can also look for the UPC product code on the label.
The company is asking consumers to throw away the affected products and contact Kellogg for a full refund by calling 1-800-962-1413 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or by visiting its website.
