Drop that Eggo. The waffles just got recalled in 25 states because of listeria fears.



Drop those Eggos! About 10,000 cases of Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles are being recalled in 25 states because Kellogg  says they may be contaminated with the bacteria listeria. 

So far, the Michigan company said it hasn't received any reports of illness. 

The company learned about the potential problem while conducting routine tests and then issued a recall, according to a release. 

What is listeria? 

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children and others with weakened immune systems. 

Symptoms can include high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. 

Anyone who experiences these symptoms should contact their physician because listeria is treatable with antibiotics.
