Veggie Noodle Co. voluntarily recalls ramen over listeria concerns
Veggie Noodle Co. is recalling
its Fresh Veggie Ramen products sold at stores including Walmart, Costco, and Trader Joe's because the egg used in the packaged product may be contaminated by listeria.
Veggie Noodle is the latest company to be impacted by the outbreak of listeria that originated from Georgia-based Almark Foods, which recalled its hard-boiled eggs earlier this month.
Almark has expanded its recall twice to involve even more products.
The recall impacts all expiration dates of the Fresh Veggie Ramen, but no other products, the company said.
Listeria is a bacteria that can serious and potentially fatal infections in children and the elderly.
