Boiled Eggs Sold at Walmart, Giant Eagle and More Recalled for Possible Listeria Contamination.
Almark Foods is recalling more of their boiled egg products due to a possible listeria contamination. The recall was issued nationwide and affects items sold at Walmart, Giant Eagle and more.
More than 30 different products are being recalled under various names. To see the full list click here.
The recall includes all hard-boiled eggs manufactured at Almark’s Gainesville, Georgia facility. This includes all retail, pillow pack, pouch pack, frozen diced and protein kit products.
The affected product can be identified by viewing the printed “Best If Used By” date on the product package. If the “Best If Used By” code starts with the prefix “G”, the product was manufactured at the company’s Gainesville, Georgia facility and is included in the recall.
For Protein Kit products, consumers are advised to check the code on the actual egg package within the kit.
The products were distributed nationwide. Consumers are urged to discard any recalled products and may contact Almark Foods’ Customer Helpline at (877) 546-0454 Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm EST.
The CDC believes the recalled egg products have sickened people in Florida, Maine, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas. One person in Texas has died and four others were hospitalized as a result of the infection.
Symptoms of a Listeria infection can include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions in addition to fever and muscle aches.
