Colorado is One of the States Affected by Multi-Million Egg Recall

Colorado is One of the States Affected by Multi-Million Egg Recall

Understandably, the news about potentially contaminated eggs causing the largest egg recall since 2010 has people anxious, and many are wondering how Salmonella even gets into eggs at their local grocery stores in the first place.

The FDA emphasises that this recall was voluntary and followed an FDA inspection of the farm which is reported to have approximately 3 million laying hens producing 2.3 million eggs a day with a USDA inspector undertaking daily inspections.

An Edgecombe County mom told CBS 17 she thinks eggs linked to a recent recall made her family sick.

Rose Acre Farms voluntarily recalled 206,749,248 eggs due to potential contamination with Salmonella Braenderup, the Food and Drug Administration said in a statement. Cal-Maine Foods said it has not yet received any reports of illnesses. The bacteria can also pass through chicken feces getting on the eggs.

The eggs are being sold under brand names such as Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, and Sunshine Farms.

Health officials were able to pinpoint Rose Acre Farms as the source of an outbreak that sickened 23 people in 9 states, specifically the company's Hyde County, NC location. For kids, the elderly, and anyone with weak immune systems, salmonella can lead to serious infections that may even become fatal.

The eggs were sold in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery, according to an FDA news release.

Salmonella is a bacteria and, if a person gets infected, the symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
