    Hey Uncle Sam, L'eggo My Eggo!!!
    Jobs-killing gummint regulation strikes again...or incompetent gummint regulators fail...take yer pick.

    In 2010, out-of-control Obama food police from the FDA sent this "warning letter" to a Kellogg plant in Atlanta that manufactures America's tasty breakfast treat, accusing them of not following government "standards"; the bureaucratese in the letter says it all:

    "...we found that you have significant deviations from the current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) regulations for food manufacturers, Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 110 (21 CFR 110). These violations and the results of the laboratory analyses cause the foods manufactured at your facility to be adulterated within the meaning of section 402(a)(4) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) [21 U.S.C. 342(a)(4)] in that they were prepared, packed, or held under insanitary conditions whereby they may have been rendered injurious to health. You may find the Act and FDA's regulations through links in FDA's home page at http://www.fda.gov."

    Kellogg USA 1/27/10

    And now this: Eggo waffles recalled amid listeria fears - CNN.com

    First they expect Kellogg's to have sanitary fork lift wheels in a factory (srsly, read the letter--do they not know that forklifts run on floors??), then they fail to catch a multi-state listeria outbreak!! Why can't Uncle Sam get it right, stop wallpapering company offices with government edicts and bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo, and just get out of the way of business??

    Kellogg's voluntary recall, done without the need for jackbooted FDA strong-arm tactics, was done after routine tests, and some Eggos were regretfully pulled from shelves only on the possibility that they might be contaminated, and no illnesses were reported--in other words, the system worked.

    Further, Kellogg's demonstrates that it's consumer-focused and friendly, generously offering purchasers of L'eggos a full refund for any products involved: https://www.kelloggs.com/en_US/contact-us.html

    Since no proof-of-purchase appears to be required, I plan to submit my request for a refund for the several thousand cases I'm pretty sure I bought, even though I don't have receipts or an especially large freezer. Kellogg's is trusting me, how much more corporate responsibility can one expect?

    And here's a handy video from Kellogg's with a useful method for keeping your Eggos from seizure by government stormtroopers:

    Looks like the illegal immigrants are getting us again by not washing their hands after taking a dump in the Eggo field. First they were killing us with listeria by sh*tting on our lettuce, now this. Trump is right!

    The listeria is probably the healthiest thing in those.
