US recalls more than 200 million eggs over salmonella fears

Salmonella Scare Prompts Egg Recall In NY, NJ

Anyone with questions about whether their eggs are part of the recall can visit the FDA website or call Rose Acres Farms at 855-215-5730.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a notice about the recall Friday, warning consumers that 22 illnesses have been reported in states along the east coast of the US because of the eggs.

The FDA said the illnesses prompted an inspection of the Hyde County farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day.

The eggs were distributed in Florida, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Almost 207 million eggs from a farm in North Carolina are being recalled from nine USA states after 22 people fell ill, the federal Food and Drug Administration has said. The bacteria can infect the egg while still in a chicken's ovary, CNN noted, or while leaving the same passageway as the bird's feces.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Twitter. Symptoms typically include fever, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal cramping.

In this case, twenty-two illnesses have been reported so far.

The brand names include Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms and Sunshine Farms, according to the FDA. It's the biggest U.S. egg recall since 2010.

Those who have purchased the eggs are urged to not use the product and return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

The eggs were sold through retail stores and restaurants.

"The eggs that are in the stores today are safe", she said by phone.

Company officials at Walmart and Waffle House didn't immediately respond to messages Sunday seeking comment.
