    Company recalls egg salad in 17 states

    WAYNE, West Virginia (AP) -- A food company says it is recalling its egg salad in 17 states because of possible contamination.

    Ballard's Farm Sausage says tests showed mixed results for a bacterium that can cause serious or fatal infections in young children or elderly people.

    It also can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

    Ballard's president says the company has temporarily suspended producing egg salad while it investigates the contamination.

    The company did not say where the containers were sold, but the states involved in the recall are Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

    Consumers can return the 12-ounce containers of egg salad for a refund.

    That's terrible, but I just can't imagine buying a container of pre-made egg salad.
