CDC warns of potential listeria outbreak linked to hard-boiled eggs

A recent hard-boiled egg recall has been expanded to products sold at Walmart and Trader Joe’s.

The products have been linked to an outbreak of listeria, according to CNN. The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control recommends that those who are at risk for listeria get rid of all hard-boiled egg products that have been produced by Allmark Foods.
