Health Alert For Processed Egg Products Unfit for Consumption

The USDA is issuing a public health alert for OvaEasy processed egg products because the company declined to expand its recall for Salmonella. The company allegedly recorded false lab reports, and produced negative results for Salmonella when the results were actually positive. They also reported that they had sampled the products for bacterial contamination when they had not.

OvaEasy-Powdered-EggsAn ongoing investigation by FSIS has uncovered these issues. The company is Nutriom LLC of Lacey, Washington. Because of these factors, the government says the products are unfit for human consumption.

The long list of unfit products can be seen at the FSIS web site, along with Julian dates and product sizes. They include OvaEasy Plain Whole Egg, Bak-Klene Egg Wash, OvaEasy UGRA, Reduced Cholesterol, Vitovo Low Fat, OvaEasy Boil-in-Bag UGR, Heat & Serve, Panera Egg Wash, and Wise Company, Wise Blend.

The original recall was for 226,710 pounds of processed egg products. The dried egg products were produced from May 2013 through January 2014, with the establishment number “INSPECTED EGG PRODUCT PLANT 21493G” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped nationwide and to U.S. military installations in the U.S. and abroad, and to Mexico.

If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. Return them to the place of purchase for a refund. FSIS advises all consumers to cook all egg products to a thermometer-verified temperature of 160°F.
