Massive egg recall sickens a dozen more people in five states

Another 12 people have become sick in the massive raw chicken egg recall.

The outbreak has been traced to a single facility in Hyde County, North Carolina, belonging to Indiana-based egg producer Rose Acre Farms. If your eggs are on the list, CDC warns you not to eat them, and to either discard them immediately or return to the place of purchase for a refund. The affected Rose Acre Farms recalled eggs are identified with plant number P-1065 and Julian date ranges of 011 through date of 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package.

Thirty-five people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup have been reported from nine states. Out of the 35 cases, 11 have resulted in people being hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported.

The Indianapolis Star reported the egg recall is one of the largest to occur since 2010, when 500 million eggs were recalled from an Iowa producer amid almost 2,000 reported illnesses linked to salmonella.

Some of those might potentially be contaminated with salmonella and sold in Publix stores.

Eggs from the farm are sold under several brands including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms and Sunups. All consumers should check their eggs for a plant number of P-1065 and a Julian date between 011 and 102 or a plant number P-1359D and Julian date 048A or 049A with Best By dates of April 02 and April 03. In addition, check for these carton details.

The number of illnesses is a dozen more since the initial recall notice was issued last month.

In 2010, a salmonella outbreak led to the massive recall of more than 1 billion eggs from Iowa farms. Twenty-two illnesses have been reported.
