Here We Go Again: 1 Million Eggs Recalled!

What’s with eggs these days? It’s déjà vu, all over again! This time we’re talking hard-boiled, not “shell eggs.”

Summer of 2010 saw the recall of more than 550 million – that’s half a billion, folks! – shell eggs contaminated with salmonella.

Now Michael Foods Inc., a Minnesota-based food company, is recalling – and recalling and recalling – more than one million hard-cooked eggs from 34 states, after tests revealed some may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

Food Safety News has the time line of the recall here:
