A nationwide toasted waffle shortage is in effect after the Kellogg factory in Atlanta experienced flooding and was shut down when a sample of buttermilk waffles tested positive for listeria.
As grocery store freezers slowly run out of the popular breakfast item, Kellogg says it will ration the waffles based on sales histories.

Shortage of frozen waffles? That hurts - almost as much as a shortage of smoked oysters, which look remarkably like canned snot.

Kellogg Co. has blamed a nationwide shortage of Eggo frozen waffles on heavy rain that shut down one of its main plants in Atlanta. But that's only part of the story.
The Atlanta facility was closed during much of September and October to sanitize the plant after inspectors found Listeria monocytogenes -- bacteria that can cause serious infection -- in a sample of Eggos, according to the Georgia Department of Agriculture. An ABCNews.com reader raised the issue in a comment posted on an earlier story.
