ATLANTA -- The Kellogg Co. says the heavy rains that brought floods to parts of metro Atlanta in September contributed to problems that led to a continuing shortage of its Eggo brand frozen waffles.

Michigan-based Kellogg says it temporarily halted production of the waffles in September at the Atlanta plant because of flooding there.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Kellogg says the Atlanta facility is back in production, but that equipment at the company's waffle bakery in Rossville, Tenn. requires extensive repairs and improvements and several lines there are out of operation.

Kellogg spokeswoman Kris Charles told the newspaper the company is working to restore Eggo inventories to normal as quickly as possible.
