Hard Boiled Eggs Sold at Walmart Recalled for Listeria
Dec. 30, 2019 - An expanded recall of hard boiled egg products linked to a listeria outbreak that has sickened at least 7 people, including 1 person who died, has led to Walmart recalling its Great Value eggs nationwide.
The listeria cases linked to hard boiled eggs were reported in Florida, Maine, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The person who died lived in Texas. Three of the listeria infections from the outbreak strain in this cluster occurred in 2017, while the other 4 occurred earlier this year, CDC said.
The recalled eggs have a "Best If Used By" date that starts with a G, which means the product was manufactured at the Almark Foods Plant in Gainesville, Georgia. Any hard boiled egg products matching this description should be thrown away or returned to the point of purchase for a refund. Great Value eggs are sold exclusively at Walmart and online at the Walmart website.

CDC is urging anyone who may be at an increased risk for listeria infection -- elderly people, children, cancer patients, and individuals with reduced immune systems -- to avoid all hard-boiled egg products. Symptoms of listeria typically appear 1 to 4 weeks after ingesting contaminated food, and the illness can be treated with antibiotics.
