Million Eggs Recalled Due to Suspected Salmonella Contamination

The recalled eggs were sold not only in North Carolina, but in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery.

The illnesses were reported in states on the U.S. East Coast, leading the FDA to conduct extensive interviews. The affected eggs should be labelled with plant number P-1065, with a packaging date of 011 through 102 printed on the packaging.

Both Walmart and Food Lion stores were recipients of the eggs packaged as their store brands, along with a score of other packaging examples. "FDA investigators then inspected the farm and collected samples for testing".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection that last from four to seven days.

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

A full list of affected eggs is listed on the FDA's food recall website.

At least 200 million eggs have been recalled across the United States due to salmonella after 22 illness were reported related to the eggs.

The company, Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana, said in its alert that it had chosen to issue the recall "through an abundance of caution".

Rose Acre Farms officials didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Those who purchased the potentially affected eggs are advised by the agency to return them to the point of objective for a full refund.

The service said it is also possible for eggs to become infected by Salmonella Enteritidis fecal contamination through the pores of the shells after they're laid.
