Leggo Those Eggos! Kellogg Recalls Eggo Waffles Across 25 States
Bad news for all the Stranger Things fans out there: If you were planning on dressing up as Eleven for Halloween, you might want to think twice.
On Sept. 19, Kellogg Company issued a voluntary recall on approximately 10,000 of its Kellogg’s Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles due to potential health risks.
So, you know, yeah: Leggo my Eggo! But then do me a favor and throw it in the trash.
The recalled Eggo waffles are said to have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and individuals with weakened immune systems. While the company has received no reports of illness as of its Sept. 19 press release, it’s reassuring to know that it’s not taking any chances with its consumers' health and safety.
Now, onto the formalities:
The recalled product was 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). The affected product’s UPC code is 38000 40370, and it’s "Better If Used Before Date" is Nov. 21 and 22, 2017.
I guess we’re all having pancakes for breakfast.
