    Just When You Think It Can't Get Any Worse...

    Kellogg predicts Eggo waffle shortage next year

    ATLANTA - Kellogg Co., the largest US maker of breakfast cereals, says flooding at an Atlanta facility and faulty equipment under repair at a Tennessee factory will cause Eggo waffle shortages through the middle of next year.

    The scarcity was triggered by September’s floods in the Southeastern United States, which temporarily closed the Atlanta factory, as well as by equipment problems at the company’s largest waffle plant, in Rossville, Tenn., spokeswoman Kris Charles said yesterday in an e-mail.

    “We are working around the clock to restore Eggo store inventories to normal levels as quickly as possible,’’ Charles said in the e-mail.

    Kellogg said it doesn’t expect the shortage to have a “material impact’’ on earnings. The Battle Creek, Mich.-based company does not provide sales figures for specific brands.

    The temporary supply disruption contributed to the 3 percent sales decline in the North American frozen and specialty channels unit last quarter, Kellogg chief executive oficer David Mackay said on an Oct. 29 earnings conference call.

    Kellogg rose 41 cents to $53.37 at 4 p.m. in New York Stock Exchange composite trading yesterday.

    The shares have gained 22 percent this year.

    Man that stuff moves the freight. I'm lucky if I have enough time to get the bowl in the dishwasher before I have to take a crap.

    Maybe this post belongs in the Markets thread, but this was stupid of Kelloggs to publish this...there are plenty of waffle makers all over, with plently of help. Trader Joe gets his waffles from Sufartic Jews in South Dakota. So, if you can go without a name brand, then...things look good for you. Stores will be contacting the distributors of those products.

    You could really run a whole tail gate off of Sufartic waffles alone.

    Two Dakotan Sufartic Jewish bakers, a keg and a spliff-ridden bio-domish Jet-tent.

    Yeah but Eggos got "Leggo My Eggo!"

    The Sulfuric Jews need a catch phrase.

    "What? So you should steal my waffle you filthy goyum?"

    See? Not as good for the little ones.

    Thanks to you I had to purchase 6 freezers to house 287 boxes of waffles (It's all Costco had left)

    Here we are, nearly 9 months later and I have 282 boxes of waffles remaining.

    So much for selling these things on Ebay.

    I thought you Jews were on point with your investment analysis?
