Possible Listeria in Eggo Waffles

Kellogg has made a
recall on their Eggo waffles after routine testing lead to the discovery of possible
contamination. The contamination concern is Listeria, a pathogenic bacterium
that can be deadly especially for children or people with a weak immune
system. The symptoms are similar to the flu in which someone affected
can produce a fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, and diarrhea.
Although no complaints were reported, Kellogg recalled 10,000 cases that
were distributed to stores in 25 states. Anyone who bought the specified
product is advised to contact the company through an 800 number for a
Traceability is pertinent for a company like Kellogg to be able to administer
a product recall. They have to be able to identify the product that has
reached their end consumer for their protection. Kellogg was able to identify
the potentially affected batches and provide the UPC code and 800 number

was signed. This law requires every Food Manufacturer and Distributor
to have the ability to track their products.
There are cases in which product injury or even death have occurred. In
fact, there are approx. 27,000 people killed or severely injured due to
product injuries. Some of the products that have shown liability include
defective medical devices, toys, consumer and household products, electronics,
and defective automobile parts and products just to name a few. Here at
