Kellogg’s issues recall of Eggo Waffles

Battle Creek, Michigan-based multinational food company Kellogg Co. issued a recall on 10,000 cases of their Eggo Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat Waffles on Monday, September 19. The recall expresses concerns that the food products may contain listeria bacteria.

Kellogg’s tells consumers to check their Eggo Waffle box; if its expiration date says Nov. 21, 2017 or Nov. 22, 2017, the product may be included among those recalled. Calling 1-800-962-1413 can get you a refund on the product. Unfortunately, Kellogg’s has already encountered problems with its Eggo Waffles products. Specifically, the United States Food and Drug Administration has previously cited Kellogg’s for its unsafe practices regarding the production of Eggo Waffles.

No limit on GM compensation fund

General Motors claims administrator Kenneth Feinberg said he will not give a concrete estimate of the full cost of GM’s compensation package to the families of the victims who died due to GM vehicles’ defective ignition switches, The Associated Press reported on June 30.

Because public claims filing has not yet begun, Feinberg said calculating the amount of claims and compensation is premature at this point. However, GM did not give him a cap on the amount of money he can give to families who qualify. Filing for claims will start on August 1 and end on December 31 of this year.

Feinberg’s announcement came the same day that GM recalled 8.2 million vehicles – a number that increased this year’s recalls to 40 million vehicles. Accidents or injuries related to this recall will not be eligible under this particular claims process.

Two lawsuits filed for alleged cyclospora outbreak

Two lawsuits were filed against Darden Corporation and Taylor Fresh Foods, Inc., accusing the companies of negligence. The lawsuits, filed by Hiawatha resident Kelly Kunc and Joyce Nendza, state that the companies failed to provide food ingredients that were clean and safe for consumption and, therefore, are liable for serving a contaminated product.

Kunc alleges that after eating at an Olive Garden located at 367 Collins Toad NE in Cedar Rapids on June 5, she experienced fatigue, cramping, and diarrhea starting on June 12, causing her to seek medical attention at Mercy Medical Center. Kunc was diagnosed with cyclospora infection July 9 after having her stool inspected on July 6 and was prescribed Bactrim. When she filed the lawsuit on Monday, August 5, she was still suffering from the infection.

Nebraska resident Joyce Nendza also filed her lawsuit on August 5.

Both victims seek to be compensated for medical expenses they incurred.
