American Shoppers Face Dire Eggo Shortage


As head-scratching as the idea of a processed breakfast food shortage may be, apparently Eggo is suffering its own version of a rainy growing season. According to its website, “Eggo recently experienced supply constraints caused by flood damage at our bakery in Atlanta. In addition, we’ve been making significant equipment and repairs in our largest waffle bakery. Unfortunately, this is taking longer than anticipated.”

The Kellogg Company estimates that they should have fixed the problem by the middle of next year, and assures concerned parties that “[t]his is a top priority for Kellogg Company.”

In the meantime, a call to Kellogg yielded the information that Eggos “may or may not be available” at Pathmark, CVS, Food Emporium, and Rite Aid.
