UPDATE October 28: Just Food will be lifting its precautionary suspension of sales on Schultz Farms Eggs this coming week.
In response to a recall of a limited number of eggs from Schultz Organic Farm on Oct 20th, Just Food Co-op made the decision to use extra precaution and pull all eggs from Larry Schultz.
At this time, the FDA investigation has concluded and no additional eggs have been linked to the salmonella outbreak. It is still unclear to the Schultz family and investigators what the source of the salmonella was, but the farm will follow their own protocols and procedures set out by the FDA to try and identify any potential sources going forward.
We look forward to getting Schultz’s Organic eggs back on our shelves, and the opportunity to support an important member of our local food shed.
Larry Schultz Organic Farm has issued a voluntary precautionary recall of some of its eggs following a Salmonella outbreak connected with these eggs. At this time, it does not appear any eggs Just Food carries are included in the recall, and we are confident in the safety of these eggs. However, Just Food recall policy calls for an abundance of caution. Accordingly, Just Food is voluntarily pulling all Schultz eggs and products made with Schultz eggs from our shelves and is refunding customers who return these eggs and/or products.
The Larry Schultz’s precautionary recall only includes cartons and cases of eggs that do not have a “Sell by” date on them; all eggs sold at Just Food Co-op come in cases that include “Sell by” dates.
Larry Schultz has spoken with us, and we are maintaining communication with him throughout this challenging time for his farms.
