Hard Boiled Egg Recall Expands to Kroger Eggs
Dec. 31, 2019 - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and various other state and local health authorities are investigating an outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes linked to packaged hard-boiled egg products used by national food service operators.
On Dec. 20, 2019, Almark Foods issued a recall for “Hard-Boiled and Peeled Eggs in white plastic pails with white plastic lids” due to potential listeria contamination. Three days later, Almark expanded the recall to include many popular brands, including Kroger eggs.
Affected products have a "Best If Used By" date that starts with a G, FDA said. Any hard-boiled eggs matching this description should not be eaten and thrown away immediately. Kroger eggs are sold at grocery stores nationwide and online.
For most healthy people, a listeria infection (listeriosis) doesn't pose much of a threat, although it may make you sick for a day or 2. But for some people -- pregnant women and their babies, children, and individuals with diseases that have reduced their immune systems -- the illness can be severe and even life-threatening.
Signs and symptoms of listeriosis may include:
- Achy muscles
If the infection spreads to your nervous system, symptoms may include:
- Stiff neck
- Loss of balance
