In late 2019, FDA, CDC, and state and local partners investigated an outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes infections linked to hard-boiled eggs produced by Almark Foods at its Gainesville, Georgia facility. Almark Foods announced an initial voluntary recall of hard-boiled and peeled eggs in pails on December 20, 2019, and then expanded the recall on December 23, 2019 to include all hard-boiled eggs produced at the Gainesville, Georgia facility. All recalled products are now past their “best by dates.
FDA recommends that food processors, restaurants and retailers who received recalled products use extra vigilance in cleaning and sanitizing any surfaces that may have come in contact with these products to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
