Hard-boiled eggs recall expanded in deadly listeria outbreak

Almark Foods has expanded its recall of hard-boiled eggs to include products sold at stores nationwide, including Costco, Walmart, Kroger and Trader Joe’s.

The company first issued the recall Dec. 20 after the Food and Drug Administration linked the eggs to a listeria outbreak that killed one person and caused illness in several others.

The expanded recall, announced Monday, now affects all products manufactured at Almark Foods’ Gainesville, Ga., facility.

The affected products have a “Best If Used By” code starting with a “G,” indicating they were made at the Gainesville location. The recall includes hard-boiled or hard-cooked eggs sold under brands such as Egglands Best, Great Day, Giant Eagle, Kirkland Signature, Kroger, Great Value, Lucerne, Simple Truth Organics and ShopRite.

Pack up these eggs and send them to the illegals along the boarder. Free Food!

Making your own hard boiled eggs is so difficult.

I used to have trouble with the exact timing when I boiled eggs to get the middle just right. But then someone told me about "baking" them. Place the eggs in the cups of a muffin tin & bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. When they come out of oven, place in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes to cool & they will peel easily. Sometimes, though you will have a little brown spot on the shell or on the actual egg itself, but it's only cosmetic & doesn't affect the taste of the egg.

Instant Pot: 3 minutes for soft boiled with runny middle, 5 for soft middle, 7 for hard. Because they're steamed, the shells can be removed in under 5 seconds.

I think stores should sell boiled water.

Why in the world would anybody be so lazy as to buy already hard boiled eggs? A pot of boiling water, add eggs, wait three-six minutes, and voila, hard boiled eggs. No trip to the store, just a pot of boiling water and some eggs. I can't believe that there is that many lazy people that there is a market for store bought hard boiled eggs. If they can't boil an egg, they shouldn't be in charge of food purchases.
