Cooked eggs recalled in California, 33 other states
By Pat Benson
February 3, 2012

ooked eggs are being recalled in California and 33 other states over concerns about possible listeria contamination.

The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday that it has not received reports of illness, but listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  In healthy people, listeria can cause high fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Michael Foods of Minnetonka, Minn., is recalling eggs in brine sold in 10- and 25-pound pails for institutional use under the brand names Columbia Valley Farms, GFS, Glenview Farms, Papetti's, Silverbrook and Wholesome Farms, the FDA said.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - February 2, 2012 – Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. is recalling hard-cooked eggs, as well as prepared foods that contain hard-cooked eggs, sold between January 23 and February 1, 2012 because the eggs have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. 

This recall only affects purchases made at Wegmans’ Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Canandaigua, Newark, Geneva, Corning, Elmira, Geneseo, and  Hornell stores.  It came about as the result of a recent recall by Minnesota-based Michael Foods, Inc., which produces the cooked eggs at its Wakefield, Nebraska facility.
