Wegmans said the recall follows a similar move by Minnesota-based Michael Foods Inc. that produces the cooked eggs at its Wakefield, Nebraska facility. A lab testing by Michael Foods revealed that some of the eggs within the recalled lot dates may have been contaminated with Listeria.
Initially, on January 26, Michael Foods had announced recall of three lot dates, which Wegmans said were not received by the company. As a precautionary measure, the recall was expanded on February 1 to include additional lot dates, one of which was received by Wegmans.
