Massive egg recall sickens a dozen more people in five states

Source MGN Online

A month ago, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that 22 people contracted salmonella infections from consuming US-raised eggs.

They are sold under brand names such as Great Value, Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms and Crystal Farms. When the agency's health inspectors did a site visit in March, they reportedly found over a dozen rodents crawling around, and also saw employees handle dirty equipment and touch their bodies without washing their hands afterward.

Unrelated, a year later in 2010, the largest salmonella-related egg recall in the USA occurred; after the FDA traced the outbreak-which sickened 1,500 people-to Iowa-based Quality Eggs, the agency forced a recall of 550 million eggs. FDA investigators then inspected the farm and collected samples for testing.

Symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain.

More salmonella illnesses are being reported following a voluntary recall of more than 200 million eggs from Rose Acre Farms in Seymour.

PREVIOUS STORY: An Indiana-based farm is voluntarily recalling 206,749,248 eggs over fears of a potential Salmonella Braenderup contamination, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. 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. These eggs were repackaged and sold under multiple brand names, including Publix and Sunups.

If you have these eggs in your house, you should thrown them away and sanitize the shelf in your refrigerator where they were sitting. 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.
