4 Hospitalized, 1 Death, CDC & FDA: investigating a multistate outbreak of Listeria linked to hard-boiled eggs, No Recall

Posted on December 20, 2019 by


CDC is concerned that bulk, fresh hard-boiled eggs produced by Almark Foods of Gainesville, Georgia, are contaminated with Listeria and have made 4 people sick (plus one death)  These products were packaged in plastic pails for use nationwide by food service operators. These products have not been recalled. However, because Listeria can cause severe infections, CDC is warning against selling, serving, or using these eggs to make other food products.

Map of United States - People infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria, by state of residence, as of December 17, 2019.

Retailers and food service operators should know who supplies their bulk hard-boiled eggs. Consumers will not be able to tell if products they’ve purchased from stores contain these eggs.
