One Million Eggs Recalled in 34 States

Posted By on Sat, Feb 4, 2012 at 8:54 AM

Idaho was not on the list of affected states but bordering states Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and 29 other states were alerted late Friday that over 1 million cooked eggs needed to be recalled by Michael Foods.

The Minnesota-based food company recalled its hard-cooked eggs after tests revealed some may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. The eggs are sold in large pails of brine for institutional use.

The Food and Drug Administration said the eggs were bought by food distributors and not sold directly to consumers. The products were sold under six brand names: Columbia Valley Farms, GFS, Glenview Farms, Papetti's, Silverbrook and Wholesome Farms.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, or others with weakened immune systems. Listeria can also cause high fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdomonimal pain and diarrhea.
