IN farm recalls over 200 million eggs due to risks of salmonella

The recall covers over 200 million eggs that were distributed nine states including West Virginia and Virginia through retail stores and restaurants.

The affected eggs are from plant number P-1065 and have the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102 printed on the package.

In addition, the company has voluntarily recalled over 206 million eggs.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Twitter.

"Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella Braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain".

The Food & Drug Administration said eggs from a North Carolina farm may be tainted with salmonella, sickening at least 22 people.

The agency advised the public to throw away the eggs or return them to the place of purchase for credit or refund.

The eggs were sold under the following brand names: Country Daybreak, Crystal Farms, Coburn Farms, Sunshine Farms, Glenview, Great Value, as well as Food Lion stores, according to the FDA website.

The eggs originated from Rose Acre's production farm in Hyde County, North Carolina.

Recalling more than 200 million eggs sold in 9 states is what one farm in Seymour had to do over fears salmonella spreading from those eggs.

The eggs all come from Rose Acre Farms in Indiana. In rare situations, Salmonella Braenderup infections can cause the organism to enter the bloodstream and produce severe illnesses, such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

The Center for Disease Control estimates that salmonella infections cause about 1.2 million illnesses and 450 deaths every year in the United States.

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