Hard-Cooked Eggs Recalled in 34 States for Possible Listeria Contamination

Hard-cooked Eggs Recalled in 34 StatesMichael Foods of Minnesota has recalled about 15,000 pails of hard-cooked eggs in brine that were produced at the company’s plant in Wakefield, Nebraska and sold to distributors for institutional use, in 34 States. The company announced that independent tests revealed that some of the eggs in the recalled batches were contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

“Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems,” the company said in a press release posted by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on February 1.

“None of the eggs were sold directly by Michael Foods to retailers or consumers. However, food distributors and manufacturers who purchased the eggs could have used them in products that were sold to retail outlets or used in foodservice settings,” the company announced.

The 34 states included in the recall are: Alabama; Arkansas; Arizona; California; Colorado; Florida; Georgia; Iowa; Illinois; Indiana; Kansas; Kentucky; Louisiana; Michigan; Minnesota; Missouri; Mississippi; Montana; North Carolina; North Dakota; Nebraska; New Jersey; Nevada; Ohio; Oklahoma; Oregon; Pennsylvania; South Carolina; Tennessee; Texas; Utah; Washington; Wisconsin; and West Virginia.

According to the press release posted by the FDA, “The recall is limited to hard-cooked eggs in brine in 10- and 25-pound pails prodced at its Wakefield, Nebraska facility, which are labeled under six brand names (Columbia Valley Farms, GFS, Glenview Farms, Papetti’s, Silverbrook, Wholesome Farms) and bearing lot codes of 1 LOT 1350W through 1 LOT 2025W and expiration dates ranging from 1/30/2012 to 3/10/2012.”

A complete copy of the press release announcing the recall is available on the FDA’s website.
