Salmonella Outbreak that Prompted Massive Egg Recall Affects NY and PA

Salmonella Outbreak that Prompted Massive Egg Recall Affects NY and PA”

Salmonella from eggs has sickened almost three dozen people, 11 of them requiring hospitalization, as an outbreak continues to spread since a multi-state recall of more than 200 million eggs in April.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has linked the outbreak to eggs from Rose Acre Farms and its production facility in Hyde County, North Carolina, which led to a voluntary recall of 206 million eggs.

The eggs were sold under the brand names Country Daybreak; Crystal Farms; Coburn Farms; Sunshine Farms; Publix; Sunups; Glenview; Great Value; as well as at Walmart and Food Lion stores.

The FDA is advising consumers not to eat recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm.

Rose Acre has come under scrutiny before after three separate outbreaks that left about 450 people sick in three states were traced back to the farm in 1990.

The outbreak has sickened 12 more people in recent weeks, bringing the total to 35 victims in nine states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The eggs were sold in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. The egg business is so interconnected that in mid-April, Cal-Maine was forced to issue its own recall for 280,800 eggs because they'd been "purchased from Rose Acre Farms and re-packaged" as Cal-Maine's. "This percentage is significantly higher than results from a survey of healthy people in which (38 percent) of respondents reported eating any eggs away from home in the week before they were interviewed". When the agency's health inspectors did a site visit in March, they reportedly found over a dozen rodents crawling around, and also saw employees handle dirty equipment and touch their bodies without washing their hands afterward.
