Listeria Found in Sample of Eggo Waffles
The Georgia Department of Agriculture has found Listeria bacteria in Kellogg Buttermilk Eggo Waffles. In order to protect the public, Kellogg has recalled two additional products produced in its Atlanta plant even though they did not test positive for Listeria.
A laboratory test by the Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) found Listeria monocytogenes in a sample of Kellogg's Buttermilk Eggo Waffles manufactured at an Atlanta plant.
The sample was taken as part of a routine inspection by GDA of the Kellogg's plant at 5601 Bucknell Dr. SW, Atlanta. This product was not shipped into the marketplace.
While no illnesses have been reported, out of an abundance of caution, Kellogg is voluntarily recalling a limited number of the following products produced in the same facility:

Kellogg has shut down the plant in Atlanta for a thorough cleaning and sanitizing.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause a range of symptoms from very mild to very severe. You cannot tell if the food is contaminated by visual means. If you have the product described above do not eat it.
