Recall: Wegmans cooked eggs; possible Listeria
ROCHESTER, N.Y.—Wegmans Food Markets is recalling hard-cooked eggs and prepared deli foods sold in New York that contain hard-cooked eggs because of possible contamination with Listeria bacteria.
The products were sold between Jan. 23 and Feb. 1 at Wegmans stores in Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Canandaigua, Newark, Geneva, Corning, Elmira, Geneseo, and Hornell. It's the result of a recall by Minnesota-based Michael Foods, which produces the cooked eggs at its Wakefield, Neb. Facility.
Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people may suffer only short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, nausea and diarrhea.
There have been no reports of illness.
The products include deviled eggs, egg salad, and several deli salads with eggs.
