Wegmans Food Markets is recalling hard-cooked eggs, as well as prepared foods that contain hard eggs due to concerns with Listeria monocytogenes. The products affected by this recall would have been sold between January 23rd and February 1st.
This recall affects purchases made at Wegmans’ Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Canandaigua, Newark, Geneva, Corning, Elmira, Geneseo, and Hornell stores, and came about as the result of a recent recall by Michael Foods which produces the cooked eggs at its Wakefield, Nebraska facility.
The following affected products sold in Wegmans prepared foods and deli departments that are included in the recall are as follows:
- Hard-Cooked Eggs (sold by the pound in prepared foods or as a choice on the Fresh Foods Bar)
- Eggs (special-order deli tray or 6-pack, 12 pack)
- Cobb Salad (10 oz, 43 oz, and 6.5 lb)
- Garden Salad (10 oz, 20 oz, 2 lb, and 5 lb)

- Egg Salad Sub (Sub Shop)
- Kosher Macaroni Salad (sold by the pound in kosher deli)

According to Michael Foods, the recall was initiated after lab testing revealed that some of the eggs within the recalled lot dates may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. A recall of three lot dates was announced on January 26th, but Wegmans had not received any of this product. Wegmans announced their recall after the initial recall was expanded on February 1st.
There have been no confirmed reports of illness in connection with these products.
