200M Eggs Recalled Amid Salmonella Fears

A recall of 206,749,248 eggs has occurred in the United States, following 22 reports of illness linked to salmonella contamination. "In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella Braenderup can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis", the FDA says.

The affected farm has paused its egg distribution and the company has voluntarily recalled more than 206 million eggs.

The FDA in a release Friday said 22 illnesses have linked to the eggs distributed from Rose Acre Farms' facility in North Carolina. It's the biggest U.S. egg recall since 2010.

According to the FDA, the eggs all come from rose acre farms in IN and at least 22 people have gotten sick because of the eggs.

They have the plant number P-1065 with the date range of 011 through 102 on the carton.

Anyone who bought eggs affected by this recall should return them for a full refund. That led them to an egg farm in Hyde County, N.C., owned by Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Ind.

Brands impacted by the voluntary recall include eggs sold under the Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Sunshine Farms, Great Value and Glenview brands, the agency said.

Authorities said Salmonella Braenderup can cause serious and potentially fatal infections in young kids, the elderly, or those with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals can experience nausea, vomiting, fever, diarrhea, and stomach pain.
