Hard-cooked eggs that may be contaminated with Listeria have prompted the 18th Street Deli of Hamtramck, MI to recall about 118 pounds of julienne salad products that include turkey, ham and the suspect eggs.
The eggs – from Michael Foods Egg Products Co. — are the subject of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration recall due to contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Friday.
The problem was discovered when 18th Street Deli was notified by one of its suppliers that hard-cooked eggs (a product inspected by the FDA) had tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes and were being recalled by Michael Foods Egg Products Co.
18th Street Deli of Hamtramck, MI, said its recalled salad products were produced on Jan. 20, 2012 and then distributed to retail stores in Michigan and vending companies in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
The recall is for 9.25-ounce packages of 18th Street Deli Julienne Salad, 18th Street Deli Julienne Salad Lite, and Balanced Choice Julienne Salad Lite that bear the establishment number P-22061 inside the USDA mark of inspection and expiration dates of 01/27/12 and 01/30/12.
18th Street Deli has received no reports of illnesses associated with these recalled products.
