More illnesses confirmed in Rose Acre Farms Salmonella recall

More illnesses have been reported in connection to a salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of more than 206 million eggs last month.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an update Thursday on the salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of about 200 million eggs produced by an IN farm.

Recalled eggs were sold in grocery stores and to restaurants under multiple brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Crystal Farms, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms, and Sunups.

A report from Food Safety News provided more information on the confirmed salmonella cases, noting that the people sickened by the tainted eggs ranged from 1 to 90 years old, with a median age of 65. The Food and Drug Administration has a list of all of the recalled brands on its outbreak investigation page.

The eggs, while produced in North Carolina, are owned by Rose Farms, an in based company.

Rose Acre Farms assures consumers that they "have already implemented numerous corrective actions" and "have also taken other steps to ensure that the farm meets or exceeds the standards of the FDA and USDA". In response, the government prohibited the company from selling eggs from three IN farms where the contaminated eggs originated and required expensive cleanups that threatened to put the company out of business. These eggs were sold under multiple brand names at numerous retailers, both in the US and overseas.

Salmonella causes serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. The outbreak spread to almost 40 states and sickened 132 people.

The symptoms, which include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, take about 12-72 hours after exposure to take effect.

In March, the CDC investigated another salmonella outbreak that involved raw coconut and sickened 13 people in eight states.

In February, Triple T Specialty Meats, based in Ackley, Iowa, recalled more than 20,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken salad products that may have been contaminated with salmonella. One person died, according to the CDC.
