I didn’t get to this bit of information on the show today, but Ballard’s Farm Sausage Inc. recalled egg salad in 17 states, including Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
The egg salad came back positive for Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause serious or fatal infections in kids and seniors, and can cause miscarriages or still births in pregnant women.
