Please review the following messages from Alan Talarsky, Environmental Scientist 1, Food and Drug Safety Program, DHSS, concerning the voluntary recalls of Ballard's 12 oz. egg salad, Food City 12 oz. egg salad and Valu Time 11 oz. egg salad and Duncan Hines® Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Muffin mix, which was manufactured by a co-packer for distribution by Pinnacle.

Ballard's Farm Sausage, Inc. of Wayne, WV, is recalling the following egg salad products -- Ballard's 12 oz. egg salad, Food City 12 oz. egg salad and Valu Time 11 oz. egg salad -- because of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. This organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled egg salads were distributed in New Jersey.

The products being recalled are sold in a clear plastic cup with the description cleared displayed on the side of the cup. All of the egg salad items being recalled, the Ballard's 12 oz. egg salad, Food City 12 oz. egg salad and the Valu Time 11 oz. egg salad, will have on the side of the cup a "Best if used by 11/7/06" description.
