Almark Foods, the producer of our hard-boiled eggs, has recently been in the news for food safety concerns regarding their bulk salad grade hard-boiled egg items sold in pails to food service customers. Out of an abundance of caution, Almark has expanded their voluntary recall to include all hard cooked egg products produced at their Gainesville, GA plant. This includes Nellie's and numerous other brands (including organic and all-natural offerings), which are listed on the FDA’s website.

Please note that this voluntary recall does not affect our shelled eggs. If you have our hard-boiled eggs, please dispose of them and contact us at [email protected]. We also recommend disposing of any other hard-boiled eggs (pre-packaged or from salad bars, etc.) that have been affected by the recall.

Our entire team here at Nellie's Free Range Eggs takes the quality and safety of our products very seriously. Production of these items will move to a new state of the art facility, and we will continue to monitor Almark’s compliance with our supplier verification program. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

How is this possible to be linked to all these companies that do not adhere to your free range moto? I'd really love to know...I make the effort to spend extra money knowing that effort is made for the welfare of thinking it's all just a marketing god, I hope not.


HI Kris, thank you for reaching out to us. Nellie's is proud to be Certified Humane and Free Range. All of our eggs come from our network of small family farms, but our pre-packaged hard-boiled eggs are currently cooked and packaged at Almark, as we do not have the facilities to do so ourselves here in New Hampshire. The same is true for most hard-boiled egg offerings on the market at the moment. Although our eggs were not originally part of the recall, out of an abundance of caution, Almark expanded their voluntary recall to include all hard cooked egg products produced there. If you happen to have any additional questions we can answer about this process, please feel free to reach out to us at: [email protected]
