MINNETONKA, Minn. — A Minnesota food company is widening its recall of hard-cooked eggs because of a potential for listeria contamination.

Michael Foods is recalling eggs in brine sold in 10- and 25-pound pails for institutional use in 34 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Jersey, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

The eggs carry six brand names, including Columbia Valley Farms, GFS, Glenview Farms, Papetti's, Silverbrook and Wholesome Farms.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the eggs were produced at theMichael Foods' plant in Wakefield, Neb., and were bought by food distributors and manufacturers. There have been no reports of illness connected to the eggs. But, the company said, the eggs have the potential to be contaminated with a strain of listeria that can cause serious infections in those with weaker immune systems.
