Kellogg recalls Eggo waffles due to possible listeria contamination

American cereal foods maker Kellogg announced a recall of approximately 10,000 cases of Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles in 25 states across the United States on Monday due to potential risks of listeria contamination. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria is commonly found in soil and water. Vegetables can become contaminated from the soil; animals can carry the bacteria without appearing ill and can infect meat and dairy products. The bacteria inside the food can spread to the processing facility and can survive there for years, where they can multiply and contaminate other foods that come through the same facility. It can even survive being frozen and can spread to the freezer where the contaminated food is stored. People consume food with listeria monocytogenes would be infected with the bacteria, which would spread beyond the gastrointestinal tract and cause infections such as fever and muscle aches. Listeria outbreak isn’t uncommon in the U.S. In May, CRF Frozen Foods announced a nationwide recall of almost 360 frozen fruits and vegetables over listeria contamination. Famous ice cream brand Blue Bell recalled its products everywhere after a large listeria outbreak in 2015. ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.
