Listeria Outbreak at a Georgia Plant Affects Ready-to-Eat Eggs

Almark Foods is recalling its ready-to-eat hard boiled eggs behind a Listeria outbreak at their Georgia manufacturing facility. The eggs were sold at major retailers including Kroger, Walmart, Costco and Trader Joe’s. Some of the eggs do not expire until late March, therefore, they may still be in consumers’ homes.

Almark’s initial recall began on December 20, 2019 and involved only hard boiled, peeled eggs in pails that were sold to restaurants and grocery store delis. The recall now includes a wide variety of products, according to the company’s recall notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration.

The products involve in the current recall have “Best If Used By” dates up through March 2, 2020. If the “Best If Used By” code starts with the prefix “G”, the product was manufactured at the Georgia facility. The FDA has reported that Almark temporarily closed the production plant in Georgia.
