Listeria Poisoning Outbreak – Kellogg’s Eggo Food Recall

Oct 26, 2016 | Class Action Lawsuits

Kellogg Company today announced a voluntary recall of approximately 10,000 cases of Kellogg’s® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Whole Wheat Waffles because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. No other Eggo products are impacted by this recall.

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.

Typical symptoms include fever, muscle aches, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal symptoms, as the infection generally takes hold in the intestines. And it can be deadly. The CDC estimates that listeria hospitalizes about 1,600 people each year, killing about 260.

Some outbreaks, of course, are worse than others and can potentially lead to deaths. While, as the CDC noted, “Listeria monocytogenes is commonly found in soil and water,” most people contract the bacterium (and the infection) through tainted foods.

The issue is that listeria not only lives but thrives in the cold, making it dangerous when a frozen food, such as Eggos, are contaminated.


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 is:
