Fans of Eggo waffles are being asked to check their freezers for potentially contaminated boxes of waffles that might have been contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes.

The Kellogg company has issued a voluntary recall of approximately 10,000 cased of Kellogg's Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles.  No other Eggo products are included in this recall.

Listeria Monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children as well as elderly or frail persons with a weak immune system.

The company has received no reports of illness to date, but is taking this action as part of its commitment to the health and safety of the people who eat their foods.

The recall affects 25 states where the product was distributed including Wyoming.
