Salmonella sickens 22 people and causes the recall of 206 million eggs | Miami Herald

Out of an abundance of caution, more than 206-million eggs produced from a farm in Hyde County are being recalled.

The eggs went to stores and restaurants in Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, Colorado and West Virginia.

Salmonella is a bacterial infection typically contracted by eating or drinking contaminated food and water.

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

Though Rose Acre Farms is headquartered in Seymour, Indiana, the aforementioned farm is in Hyde County, North Carolina.

The eggs were packaged and sold under several brand names including, but not limited to, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Sunshine Farms, Crystal Farms, and Great Value.

Salmonella Braederup is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, the elderly or others with weakened immune systems.

The recall involves eggs with the plant number P-105, with the Julian date range of 011 through 012 printed on either side of the carton or package. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Anyone who purchased contaminated eggs is asked to return them to the store and get a full refund.

Consumers with questions can contact Rose Acre Farms at 855-215-5730.
