Wegman’s Recalls Prepared Foods Containing Hard-Cooked Eggs
Wegmans is recalling hard-cooked eggs, as well as prepared foods that contain hard-cooked eggs, sold between January 23rd and February 1st of this year because of possible Listeria contamination.
A Wegmans news release indicates the eggs have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, the elderly and people with compromised 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.
The following affected products sold in Wegmans prepared foods and deli departments are included in the recall:
Hard-Cooked Eggs (sold by the pound in prepared foods or as a choice on the Fresh Foods Bar.)
Deviled Eggs (special-order deli tray or 6-pack, 12 pack)
