BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Kellogg Company announced Monday it will recall approximately 10,000 cases of Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles after they were possibly contaminated with the bacteria listeria.

Kellogg announced on its website that no other Eggo products are impacted by the recall, which is being done voluntarily.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

No one has fallen sick yet due to the potentially-tainted waffles, Kellogg says, and added that they are taking the action as part of a “commitment to the health and safety of the people who eat (Kellogg) foods.”

The Eggo Waffles being recalled were distributed to customers and retailers in 25 states (CO, CT, DE, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, VA, VT, WI, WY). Fortunately, Texas is not of the states mentioned in recall.

The affected product is:

Kellogg’s ® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Whole Wheat Waffles

UPC Code: 38000 40370

The “Used by” date will read either November 21st and 22nd of 2017.

The date code can be found on the side of the package. Images of the product can be found at www.kelloggs.com/eggorecall.

Kellogg said “a series of routine tests” uncovered the possible contamination risk.

Kellogg is asking that people who purchased affected product discard it and contact the company for a full refund. Consumers can call 1-800-962-1413, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. ET or by visiting https://www.kelloggs.com/en_US/contact-us.html
