American Egg Products is recalling their frozen egg product, as it may be contaminated with Salmonella. The affected egg product was distributed to Georgia and Florida, and sold to three distributors and food manufacturers.
The product, American Egg Products Frozen Eggs, comes in five pound paper cartons. The Lot # 272-1 is printed across the side of the master case, and the plant number: 272 1 P 1105 is imprinted inside each individual carton. The recall was initiated as a result of a routine sampling, revealed that the finished product contained Salmonella. American Egg Products has stopped distribution of the frozen eggs.
Just yesterday, we reported that Salmonella was being linked to organic eggs, distributed by Larry Schultz Organic Farm. Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product.
