In a news release, American Egg Products, in cooperation with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced the recall of their 5-pound cartons of frozen egg product due to the possibility that they are contaminated with Salmonella.
This recall affects all 5-pound paper carton containers of American Egg Products Frozen Egg Product. These items can be identified by the lot number 272-1 that is printed across the side of the master case, as well as being embossed on the gable of each individual carton. The recall was initiated after a routine sampling by a third party laboratory discovered that the finished product contained Salmonella. The frozen egg product was distributed to several distributors for further distribution to food manufacturers. The company has since ceased all distribution of the product. An ongoing investigation by the FDA and American Egg Products is underway to reveal the source of the problem.
Consumers that have purchased this product are being urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Neither the FDA nor American Egg Products has received any reports of illness in association with this recall.
