Egg triggers Cece’s brand ramen recall from Veggie Noodle Co.

Veggie Noodle Co. LLC, Austin, Texas, is recalling a ramen kit because it contains a hard-boiled egg from a company involved in a recall for a Listeria monocytogenes outbreak.

There are six illnesses and one death related to the recall of Almark Foods’ eggs processed at its Gainesville, Ga., processing facility. There are no reported illnesses from Veggie Noodle products, and no other products are being recalled.

The company recalled its Cece’s Veggie Co. brand Fresh Veggie Ramen with Chicken Broth, an 11.5-ounce pack with the Universal Product Code of 5228700653, according to a notice Veggie Noodle Co. posted on the Food and Drug Administration’s recall website.

Veggie Noodle Co. has contacted its customers to confirm the ramen kit has been removed from retailers, according to the FDA notice.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Almark Foods recalled eggs from the Georgia facility on Dec. 23, and expanded the recall on Dec. 27. The FDA found Listeria monocytogenes in environmental samples at the Gainesville plant that whole genome sequencing confirmed is “closely related” to the cases under investigation, according to the FDA.

Cases of listeriosis have been reported in Florida, Maine, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas, according to the CDC.

The full list of recalled Almark Foods eggs is on the FDA’s website.
