Sure, as a kid, I loved Tony the Tiger, but then I grew up.
The company founded on fairytales and colonic cleansing in Michigan, the company that said in the wake of the 2009 Peanut Corporation of America that called for more government because its own internal audits of suppliers was so terribly shitty, is now recalling about 10,000 cases of its Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles in 25 states because they could be contaminated with listeria.
The recalled waffles are available in 10-count packs with “Used by” dates of Nov. 21, 2017 and Nov. 22, 2017. Kellogg Co., which also makes Frosted Flakes and Special K, said no other Eggo products were affected.
Reuters reports tonight that in October 2009 Atlanta plant inspection found bacterial contamination and sanitation violations such as improper handling of trash and food, and insufficiently sanitized equipment, the FDA said.
The FDA’s letter, dated Jan. 27, comes after the Georgia Department of Agriculture found Listeria bacteria in Eggo Buttermilk Waffles on Aug. 31.
Kellogg’s plant had "significant deviations" from the manufacturing practices for food manufacturers and Kellogg’s response so far had not addressed the violations, the agency wrote.
Kellogg said on Tuesday it has fully addressed all of the violations and that its response to the FDA letter would be filed shortly.
