Snack kits containing hard-boiled eggs recalled due to possible listeria contamination

Reichel Foods Inc., out of an abundance of caution, is voluntarily recalling Pro2Snax To The Max Granny Apples /Hard Boiled Egg/Cheddar/Cashew & Craisin and Pro2Snax To The Max Gala Apples/Hard Boiled Egg/White Cheddar/Almond & Craisin. These items were distributed to retailers nationwide, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This recall is taking place because Almark Foods of Gainesville, GA may have supplied single serve prepackaged hard boiled eggs contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and its association with a Listeria monocytogenes foodborne illness investigation.

Reichel Foods, Inc. has had no reported illnesses related to Pro2Snax to the Max products.

These single serve hard boiled egg products have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Consumers should discard the product immediately or return it to their point of purchase for a full refund. Customers with questions may contact Reichel Foods Inc. at 1-866-372-2609, ext 233.
