A major recall has just been issued after multiple salmonella outbreaks. More than 200 million eggs have now been recalled after the outbreak, which has been traced back to a farm in North Carolina.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, the eggs were distributed in nine states. Those states include Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
According to the New York Times, "Eggs from the North Carolina farm were sold to restaurants and in supermarkets under multiple brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value (sold at Walmart), Nelms and Sunshine Farms."
Affected eggs will be in cartons labeled with plant number P-1065. The packing dates will range from 011 through 102. Rose Acre Farms has been in full cooperation with the FDA as they work through to resolve this issue.
“We apologize to anyone who may have been sickened or who has a family member or friend who may have taken ill because of our eggs,” they said. “Meanwhile, we have already implemented numerous remedial actions and have not only corrected deficiencies at the farm, but we’ve also taken other steps to ensure the farm meets or exceeds the standards by the FDA and USDA," wrote Rose Acre Farms concerning the eggs.
So far, 11 people have been hospitalized. the eggs in question can be very harmful if eaten and everyone is encouraged ot please double check your eggs before you eat them! Luckily, no deaths have been reported so far.
“Consumers with these eggs shouldn’t eat them,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb tweeted. “Throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for credit or refund.”
