In St. Louis, Dierbergs Pulls Hard-Cooked Eggs

Dierbergs grocery store chain has pulled all Hawkeye Food Service hard-cooked egg products from its food bars. Hawkeye is recalling two lots of hard-cooked egg products packed in brine because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an illegal adulterant in ready-to-eat foods.

The Southroads Dierbegs on Tesson Ferry received the eggs with the specified lot codes, but Dierbergs is removing all of the eggs distributed by Hawkeye as a precaution.

If you have purchased the eggs, return the product for a full refund. There are no reports of illnesses related to this recall so far.

This brings up an interesting point. In recent weeks, food retailers seem to be pulling more product than the recall requires. And they’re recalling them and removing them from store shelves very quickly. Under the Food Safety Modernization Act, the FDA is going to start implementing stronger regulations to keep recalled food from hurting people.

Retailers such as Dierbergs and Winn-Dixie, which pulled all LEASEA sprouts products when the recall was only for a certain brand, are being more proactive in anticipation of these regulations.
