Following the recall for 88 different egg products that were sold at stores such as Kroger, Giant Eagle, Walmart, ShopRite, and other retailers, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued a warning about hard-boiled eggs from Almark Foods because they may be contaminated with Listeria.

The FSIS said the health alert has been issued “out of an abundance of caution,” so consumers do not consume the contaminated egg products, which has been updated to also include egg and bacon sandwich products.

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and regulatory officials located in several states are investigating a multistate outbreak of Listeria that has been linked to hard-boiled eggs produced by Almark Foods.

The new recall adds to the initial recall posted by the FDA. It now has been expanded to now include 3.6-ounce plastic packages of Cheesewich Ready to Eat Bacon N Eggs. The product has Use By dates of 12/27/19, 1/3/20, 1/23/20, 1/30/20, 2/6/20, 2/14/20, 2/19/20, and 2/28/20 and lot codes of 281191, 302191, 309191, 316191, 323191, 331191, 336191, and 344191.

The egg and bacon products have the establishment number of P-45031 inside the USDA mark of inspection. Labels of the recalled eggs and bacon sandwiches can be viewed here.

Consumers are urged not to eat the affected egg products. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. Questions about the recalls can be directed to Almark Foods’ Customer Helpline at 1-877-546-0454, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

Listeria illness can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions sometimes with diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. Elderly adults, those with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns are more susceptible to serious infections from Listeria contamination.
