Columbia, SC (WLTX)- Kellogg is recalling about 10,000 cases of its Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles because they could be contaminated with the bacteria listeria.
Listeria can cause serious and even deadly infections. It primarily affects the elderly, pregnant women, newborns and people with weak immune systems.
The company says it has not received any reports of illnesses. Kellogg says it learned of the potential problem after routine tests.
The waffles -- available in 10-count packs with "Used by" dates of Nov. 21, 2017 and Nov. 22, 2017 -- were sold in 25 states. Other Eggo Waffle flavors and sizes are not being recalled.
"The recall is a result of routine tests that the company conducts which identified the potential for contamination," the company said on its website. "As soon as the company learned of a potential concern, it moved quickly to identify any foods that might be impacted and resolve the issue."
Kellogg is asking that people who purchased affected product discard it and contact the company for a full refund. Consumers can call 1-800-962-1413, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. ET.
