Two of the major plants that make the frozen yummies have closed down indefinitely – one due to storm damage and the other for a major overhaul. As a result, according to Kellogg, there will be a nation-wide shortage of EGGO waffles for the foreseeable future.

Kellogg Warns of Eggo Waffle Shortage
Dear Kellogg: Leggo my Eggo!
Kellogg Co. says there will be a nationwide shortage of its popular Eggo frozen waffles until next summer because of interruptions in production at two of the four plants that make them.
The company’s Atlanta plant was shut down for an undisclosed period by a September storm that dumped historic amounts of rain in the area. Meanwhile, several production lines at its largest bakery in Rossville, Tenn., are closed indefinitely for repairs, company spokeswoman Kris Charles said in an e-mail.
It will take until the middle of 2010 before shelves around the country are stocked at pre-shutdown levels, Charles said.
