Sixdog Investments LLC is voluntarily recalling some cases of its certified organic eggs, because of the potential they are contaminated with Salmonella. This voluntary field action was initiated because of routine testing results, and not because of illness to date from consumption.
The recalled eggs were distributed in Colorado, although some eggs may have gone to Idaho, Kansas, New Mexico and Utah through retail outlets.
The eggs are packed in dozen and half-dozen packages. The products in question will have a packing date of 93, 94, 97, or 98; an expiration date of “051814,” “051914,” “052214” or “052314”; they will also include a location code of 1 or 3. This information is on the package, located on a white sticker on the end of each carton.
The company is confident that any and all products sent out with any other packing codes or expiration dates are fully safe for consumption.
Routine testing, initiated by Sixdog Investments, revealed that the finished products from certain barns could potentially contain the bacteria, according to a news release from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The company immediately ceased production in these areas, and began taking action to rectify the situation.
Consumers who have purchased these Sixdog Investment eggs may return the eggs to the place of purchase for a full refund.
