Moark, Cardenas Market and Trafficanda Egg Ranch Included in Expanded Egg Recall
More farms and markets with links to Wright County Eggs are announcing voluntary recalls of shell eggs due to possible contamination with Salmonella enteritidis. Moark LLC, Cardenas Market, and Trafficanda Egg Ranch have all announced recalls of eggs in the past two days.
Moark LLC of Fontana, California issued the recall because some of their brands and packages contained eggs from Hillandale Farms of Iowa. The eggs distributed by Moark LLC are sold under several different brand names and sold to both grocery stores and foodservice customers. The company estimates that over 24,000 dozen eggs were sold to customers in Southern California and Las Vegas NV.
Moark LLC egg recall list includes:
• Yucaipa Valley Large - 1 dozen
• Albertsons Large - 1 dz and 18 ct
• Mountain Dairy Large - 1 dozen
• Farmer’s Gems Large - 1 dozen
• Large Loose foodservice pack
All of the above egg carton package sizes have Plant number 1156 and the Julian Date of 187 (July 6, 2010) stamped on the end of the package.
Cardenas Market Brand eggs are also being recalled. These eggs were sold to grocery stores in California and Nevada. The eggs were sold in 60-count or 5-dozen egg carton packs with plant number 1026 and Julian dates ranging from 136 through 228.
Trafficanda Egg Ranch products were included in the initial Wright County Egg outbreak, but the company is expanding the recall to include all medium, large, X-Large, and Jumbo AA Cartons, 5-Dozen (60-count) Medium Over Wrap and 20-count Medium Over Wrap Fresh Shell Eggs due to the potential for being contaminated with Salmonella enteritidis.
These eggs were distributed to grocery stores and foodservice companies in California and packaged under the Trafficanda Egg Ranch brand name. Plant numbers involved include 1026, 1413, 1720, 1942, and 1946. Julian dates ranged from 136 to 229.
Consumers who believe they have purchased these shell eggs should not eat them but should either destroy or return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.
