As if the ruined economy wasn't enough, now poor Americans have to deal with a nationwide shortage of delicious (and cheap!) Eggo waffles afflicting our country. What could cause such suffering?
Eggo's parent company, Kellogg Co., blamed the frozen waffle shortage on the floods that struck Atlanta this September, claiming the heavy rains shut down one of its main plants located in the city. But in actuality, the plant was closed during most of September and October after Listeria monocytogenes were found in a sample of Eggos. Listeria is a bacteria that is harmless for most people but can be dangerous for pregnant women, newborns and people with weakened immune systems.
The company recalled nearly 4,500 cases of Eggos and ceased production at the plant for much of September and October. The flooding then delayed the plant's re-opening, according to Kellogg.
Still sure you won't leggo that Eggo?
