Elevation Foods is voluntarily recalling several egg-based products sold at Target and The Fresh Market due to possible Listeria contamination.

The company is recalling containers of Archer Farms-brand egg salad; Freskėt-brand egg salad, tuna salad and Thai lobster salad; and Archer Farms-brand deviled egg sandwiches that were produced on June 18.

Elevation Foods found the problem after products tested positive for listeria when checked by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Elevation Foods said it is continuing to investigate potential sources of the problem.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, the products were manufactured at Elevation Foods’ Knoxville, Tennessee facility. The company believes that fewer than 1,087 cases of the products have been shipped to retailer warehouses across the United States.

No illnesses have been reported.
