WZZM-13 reports hard-boiled egg products from more than 80 brands are being recalled after being linked to a deadly Listeria outbreak.
According to the CDC, so far seven people have gotten sick and one person has died.
The eggs are from Almark Foods of Gainesville, Georgia. They were sent to retailers nationwide including Trader Joe's, Walmart, Fresh Thyme, and Costco.
The recall includes all hard boiled egg products from the Gainesville plant with “Best If Used By” dates up through March 2, 2020.
It's not just whole hard-boiled eggs, but also other items that include egg products. On Monday, Bakkavor Foods voluntarily recalled Trader Joe's Egg Salad and Potato Salad due to possible Listeria contamination.
A full list of recalled products has been posted by the FDA and includes Best Choice, Dairy Fresh, Egglands Best, Everyday Essentials, Fresh Thyme, Giant Eagle, Great Day, Great Value, Kirkland Signature, Kroger, Members Mark, Vital Farms, and more.
If you purchased these items, you are encouraged to throw them out or return them to the store.
The CDC urges anyone at high risk for Listeria infection, such as pregnant women and people over 65, to throw away any store-bought hard-boiled egg product regardless of where they were purchased or use-by date.
