Statement regarding the recall of Sparboe Farms, Dean Foods, Hillandale Farms, Cal-Maine and Nu-Cal Foods eggs

Customer safety is a top priority at Walmart and Sam’s Club and that includes offering safe, high-quality foods at the most affordable prices. We are concerned about the nationwide Salmonella outbreak linked to shell eggs and are monitoring this situation very closely.

Walmart’s Great Value brand is not impacted by the recall announced earlier by Wright County Eggs.

Four of Walmart’s egg suppliers (Sparboe Farms, Dean Foods, Hillandale Farms and Cal-Maine Foods) and one Sam’s Club supplier (NuCal Foods) announced recalls of eggs that were sourced from or linked to Wright County Eggs. As soon as we have been notified, we have promptly pulled the eggs from our stores’ shelves. These recalls have affected nearly 630 Walmart stores in 20 states (CO, MT, ND, SD, NE, WI, MN, MO, NM, TX, IL, IN, IA, KY, NY, OH, PA, WV, MI and WY) and 7 Sam’s Club locations in Northern California and Nevada.

We continue to work with our suppliers to monitor the situation and will take the appropriate steps to remove affected products from our store shelves. Customers who suspect they may have eggs associated with the recall are encouraged to return the product to their local store for verification.
