BATTLE CREEK (WWJ) — Time to check your freezer.
Michigan-based Kellogg Company is recalling a limited amount of waffles because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Recalled product — 12.3-ounce (10 count) boxes of Kellogg’s Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles — was distributed to customers and retailers in 25 states, including Michigan.
The “Better If Used Before” dates on the affected waffles are November 21 and 22, 2017. The UPC code is 38000 40370.
The company has received no reports of illness, but is taking action as part of its “commitment to the health and safety of the people who eat its foods.”
Listeria 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.
Kellogg is asking that people who purchased affected product discard it and contact the company for a full refund.
