Waffle shortage could last until next summer


ATLANTA (WKOW) -- Interruptions in production at two Eggo frozen waffle plants will create a nationwide shortage that could last until next summer.

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 says it will take until the middle of 2010 before shelves around the country are stocked at pre-shutdown levels.

Shelves are nearly empty in many grocery store freezer aisles.
