Check Your Eggs! 200 Million Eggs Recalled Over Salmonella Fears

Eggs from the Rose Acre Farms facility in Hyde County, N.C., went to nine states including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida.

According to the FDA, 22 illnesses have been reported so far. Twenty-two illnesses have been reported.

The egg cartons needs to be labeled together with packing dates ranging throughout 102 from 011, with the plant range P-1065. "FDA investigators then inspected the farm and collected samples for testing".

The recall is the largest of eggs in the U.S. since 2010, when more than 550 million eggs were recalled from two Iowa farms, according to the website Food Safety News.

"Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other body sites and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics", the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advised.

Eggs in the Vermont farm were sold to restaurants and also into supermarkets under several new names, including Coburn Farms, State Day Break, Food Lion, Glenview, Excellent worth, Nelms and Sun Shine Farms.

Rose Acre Farms officials didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

In some cases, diarrhea can be so dehydrating that it might require prompt medical attention. While most recover without treatment, according to the release, the elderly and young children are most likely to suffer severe illness. Jack and his son Peter DeCoster each plead guilty to one count of allowing misbranded and adultered food to enter interstate commerce.The men and their company, Quality Egg LLC ended up paying $7 million in fines and they served three months in federal prison.
