Ballard's Farm Sausage says tests showed mixed results for a
bacterium that can cause serious or fatal infections in young
children or elderly people. It also can cause miscarriages and
stillbirths in pregnant women.
Ballard's President David Ballard says the company has
temporarily suspended producing egg salad while it investigates the
contamination. Consumers can return the 12-ounce containers of egg
salad for a refund.
The company did not say where the containers were sold.
The states involved in the recall are Alabama, Delaware,
Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New York,
New Jersey, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania,
Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
