Thousands of Publix eggs added to recall due to salmonella risk

Thousands of Publix eggs added to recall due to salmonella risk

Cal-Maine Foods, which distributes eggs to Publix stores and under the Sunups brand in Florida, said it was recalling a single load, or about 23,000 eggs purchased from the eastern North Carolina farm at the root of a recent salmonella scare. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released a new inspection report for the producer detailing several violations, including a mouse infestation and improper procedures by employees at the facility.

The Inspectorate informs all retailers and consumers who might have purchased the specified eggs from Rose Acre Farms to throw them away and not eat them. The inspector said some employees did not appear to be following sanitation protocol and were touching their "intergluteal cleft" and other body parts and then making contact with food contact surfaces without washing their hands or changing their gloves.

According to the FDA, 22 illnesses have been reported as a result of the eggs to date.

A week ago, Rose Acre Farms voluntarily recalled nearly 207 million eggs produced at its Hyde County farm.

"It's unfair to be judged on the farm's operation without proper perspective or a chance to formally respond to an incomplete representation of a massive facility that houses more than 3 million hens", Grabowski said.

According to the FDA report of inspections of that farm conducted between March 26 and April 7, FDA representatives observed live rodents in feed and production areas. Symptoms include upset stomach, nausea and abdominal cramping. Food Lion and Walmart eggs (Great Value) are included in this recall.

"We do everything possible to safeguard our flocks and to ensure that we are providing a safe, affordable and abundant supply of eggs to USA consumers", the company said in a statement to WITN News. "Thank you for your understanding and patience".
