Two Kellogg’s Eggo Products Recalled

kelloggs-logoKellogg’s recently recalled two of its Eggo products after a routine inspection found traces of listeria monocytogenes bacteria, which can cause listerosis or meningitis. Listerosis is a serious condition that can cause miscarriages in pregnant women and also cause severe infection. In all, Kellogg’s is recalling 4,500 cases of product just to be safe.

There have been no reported cases of illness caused by the tainted Eggo products, which were discovered before leaving the Kellogg’s plant based in Atlanta, but Kellogg’s has decided to play it safe by announcing a recall on certain Eggo products nonetheless. Here’s the two products included in the recall (source: Medicine.net):

  1. Kellogg’s Eggo Cinnamon Toast waffles, 10-count package, UPC code 3800040440 with “Best If Used Before” dates beginning with: NOV22 10 EA, NOV23 10 EA and NOV24 10 EA.

  2. Kellogg’s Eggo Toaster Swirlz Cinnamon Roll Minis eight-count package, UPC code 3800023370 with a “Best If Used Before” date beginning with NOV15 10 EA.

If you have purchased either of these Kellogg’s Eggo products, you can return them to the place of purchase for a refund. If you are experiencing symptoms of high fever, nausea, stiffness in your neck or severe headache after eating either of these products, consult your doctor as soon as possible, as these may be symptoms of meningitis caused by exposure to listeria bacteria. I must stress, however, that it is reported that no Eggo products left the Atlanta plant where the outbreak was discovered that were tainted, and all of the products found to be have possible exposure to the listeria bacteria were quarantined before leaving the facility.

    After the listeriosis outbreak that occurred in meat products in Canada, food companies are taking no chances in recalling the products to avoid any risks to customers and damage to business reputation.
