More than 200 million eggs recalled, fear of salmonella contamination

More than 200 million eggs recalled, fear of salmonella contamination

The recall came about after the illnesses were reported in states along the East Coast, and the FDA inspected the farm in eastern North Carolinas Hyde County that produces about 2 million eggs per day.

"FDA analysis of the samples revealed that the same strain of Salmonella Braenderup that caused the illnesses was present at the Hyde County Egg facility, tying the facility to the illnesses".

According to the release, no matter the packaging, the affected eggs will be marked as coming from plant number P-1065 and will fall in the Julian date range of 011 through 102. The eggs can be found at Walmart and Food Lion stores.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Twitter.

Healthy individuals who contract the bacteria can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. While most recover without treatment, according to the release, the elderly and young children are most likely to suffer severe illness.

"Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other body sites and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics", the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised.

Consumers are urged to immediately discontinue use of the recalled eggs and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Rose Acre Farms responded to the discovery by voluntarily going through with the recall, and halting production of eggs.
