Hey, There's Listeria In The Eggo Waffles

Well, %#$% there is listeria in the Eggo Waffles. A sample of buttermilk Eggo waffles tested positive for listeria, says the Georgia Department of Agriculture. The product wasn’t shipped to the marketplace, but they’re recalling a few batches that did — just in case.

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

“Out of an abundance of caution, Kellogg’s is voluntarily recalling a limited number of the following products produced in the same facility,” the department said in a statement.

The recalled products are sold in packages of 10 with the UPC code 3800040440 and labeled with “Best If Used Before” dates beginning with: NOV22 10 EA, NOV23 10 EA and NOV24 10 EA.

Also being recalled are Eggo Toaster Swirlz Cinnamon Roll Minis sold in packages of eight, with the UPC code 3800023370 and “Best If Used Before” dates beginning with NOV15 10 EA.
