What’s the Problem?
Jan. 13, 2020 – The outbreak of listeria monocytogenes linked to hard-boiled egg products from Almark Foods has sickened at least 7 people in 5 states, including 1 who died in Texas, according to the U.S. centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The potentially contaminated eggs were distributed to food service operators across the U.S., CDC said. Almark says it has temporarily halted all production at its Gainesville facility until health officials can determine the specific source of the outbreak.
In addition to CMI eggs, the recalled products were sold under multiple brand names including 7 Select, Best Choice, Dairy Fresh, Deb-El, Egglands Best, Everyday Essentials, Farmers Hen House, Food Club, Fresh Thyme, Giant Eagle, Great Day, Great Value, Inspired Organics, Kirkland Signature, Kroger, LIDL, Lucerne, Members Mark, Naturally Better, Nellie’s, O Organics, Peckish, Pete & Gerry’s, Rainbow Farms, Rembrandt Foods, ShopRite, Simple Truth Organics, Sunshine, Vital Farms, and Wild Harvest.
The Almark recall includes all product packaged for the retail market manufactured at its Gainesville plant that remains within shelf life. This includes product with “Best If Used By” dates up through March 2, 2020.
If you developed symptoms of food poisoning after eating any of the recalled eggs, you should contact your doctor immediately.
