Eggs recalled due to salmonella

Eggs recalled due to salmonella”

The eggs were delivered from a farm situated in Hyde County, North Carolina and reached in retail stores and restaurants in Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Florida, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia, and Virginia.

Twenty-two illnesses have been reported, the FDA said.

The recall was issued through an "abundance of caution" due to reported illnesses in the East Coast. The FDA noted that the affected eggs had a plant number P-1065 and a Julian date range of 011 to 102 printed on the side of each carton or package.

The Food and Drugs Administration announced the recall of more than 200 million eggs.

The North Carolina facility has roughly 3 million hens who put out an average 2.3 million eggs each day, according to the FDA.

Food Lion has pulled the recalled eggs from shelves of the approximately 400 stores where they were available, said spokeswoman Emma Inman.

More than 200 million eggs distributed to restaurants and grocery stores in nine states have been recalled because of bacterial contamination.

Meanwhile, the FDA has reportedly urged consumers to check their purchases and avoid eating eggs that might be contaminated. However, in rare circumstances, Salmonellosis can cause the bacteria to enter the bloodstream and produce more serious consequences, such as arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis, according to the FDA. The CDC said that in some persons, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized.

The largest recall of table eggs happened in 2010. Jack and his son Peter DeCoster each plead guilty to one count of allowing misbranded and adultered food to enter interstate commerce.The men and their company, Quality Egg LLC ended up paying $7 million in fines and they served three months in federal prison.
