As reported by FDA on its official website that day, Michael Foods, Inc. is recalling specific lot dates of hard-cooked eggs in brine sold in 10-pound and 25-pound pails that were produced at its facility in Wakefield, Nebraska.

According to FDA, the recalled eggs were purchased by food distributors and manufacturers located in 34 US states, and are labeled under six brand names, namely Columbia Valley Farms, GFS, Glenview Farms, Papetti’s, Silverbrook, and Wholesome Farms.

The 34 US states are Alabama; Arkansas; Arizona; California; Colorado; Florida; Georgia; Iowa; Illinois; Indiana; Kansas; Kentucky; Louisiana; Michigan; Minnesota; Missouri; Mississippi; Montana; North Carolina; North Dakota; Nebraska; New Jersey; Nevada; Ohio; Oklahoma; Oregon; Pennsylvania; South Carolina; Tennessee; Texas; Utah; Washington; Wisconsin; and West Virginia.

Meanwhile, the lot affected codes are from 1 LOT 1350W to 1 LOT 2025W, and have expiration dates ranging from January 30, 2012 to March 10, 2012, with the agency noting that only lot codes preceded by a “1” and ending in a “W” are affected and none of them were sold directly to retailers or consumers.

Apparently, this latest egg recall was decided initiated after recent lab testing resulted to a possible Listeria contamination from some of the eggs within the recalled lot dates, with FDA emphasizing that there are confirmed incident-related reports of that time.

For more information, Michael Foods is advising the public to call their office at 877-367-3447, Monday through Friday, 8am – 5pm EST, or visit the official FDA website at FDA.gov.

Meanwhile, Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. and Allison’s Gourmet Kitchens also announced a separate recall for their products that contained hard-cooked eggs, which are affected by this egg recall.
