OvaEasy Dried Egg Products Recalled for Possible Salmonella

Nutriom LLC of Washington state is recalling about 226,710 pounds of processed egg products because they may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. The problem was discovered by Washington state laboratories in response to a billing inquiry by Nutriom LLC. The lab notified FSIS of the discrepancies in results. No reports of illnesses have come in to date.

You can see the long list of recalled products, along with package size, Julian dates, and code information, at the FSIS web site. Some of the products were shipped to co-packers for incorporation into consumer-size packages, including OvaEasy Plain Whole Egg and OvaEasy Boil-in-Bag Egg Mix. Some products were packaged in consumer-sized packages, including OvaEasy Boil-in-Bag Egg Mix, OvaEasy Plain Whole Egg, Egg Crystal, and OvaEasy UGR H&S.

The dried egg products were produced between February 28, 2013 and February 8, 2014 and have the establishment number “INSPECTED EGG PRODUCTS PLANT 21493G” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were shipped nationwide and to the U.S. military installations in the U.S. and abroad, as well as to Canada.

FSIS advises all consumers to cook all egg products to a temperature of 160 degrees F as verified by a food thermometer. Some eggs do contain Salmonella bacteria, since the bacteria can be inside the hen’s ovaries and is in the egg before the shell is formed. Washing eggs before use does not make them safe.
