MIAMI (CBSMiami) — The USDA announced Saturday hundreds of  thousands of pounds of processed egg products are being recalled  for possible Salmonella contamination.

Products being recalled include the OvaEasy Boil-in-Bag Egg, OvaEasy Plain Whole Egg, OvaEasy Boil-in-Bag, Heat and Serve, and the OvaEasy Plain Whole Egg, Cage Free.

The products were produced between Feb. 28, 2013, and Feb. 8, 2014, and have the establishment number “Inspected egg products plant 21493G” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection.

The  products had been shipped around the U.S., to various military installations, and Canada.

According to the USDA, the problem was discovered by Washington State Laboratories due to a billing inquiry by another company.

The laboratory then notified U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) personnel of the discrepancies in laboratory results.

The FSIS and the company have not gotten any reports of illnesses.
