206 million eggs from NC farm recalled after salmonella sickens 22 people

206 million eggs from NC farm recalled after salmonella sickens 22 people”

Out of an abundance of caution, more than 206-million eggs produced from a farm in Hyde County are being recalled. In healthy individuals, the organism can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. At least 22 illnesses to date have been traced back to the North Carolina farm that produces 2.3 million shell eggs a day from 3.0 million laying hens.

The recall by Rose Acre Farms is, according to Food Safety News, the largest in the United States since a 2010 recall also spurred by salmonella.

Though Rose Acre Farms is headquartered in Seymour, Indiana, the aforementioned farm is in Hyde County, North Carolina.

The affected eggs came from Rose Acre's Hyde County, N.C., production farm, and were distributed to consumers in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. The eggs were sold through retail stores and to restaurants via direct delivery.

According to the FDA, Rose Acre Farms, based in IN, has voluntarily recalled the eggs, which were sold under a variety of brands including store brands at Walmart and Food Lion.

Anybody with recalled eggs should return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.

A full list of impacted eggs can be found here.

Anyone with any questions can call the company at 1-855-215-5730, 8 a.m.to 5 p.m., Eastern Standard time.
