Salmonella Scare Prompts Egg Recall In NY, NJ

Salmonella Scare Prompts Egg Recall In NY, NJ

More than 200 million eggs have been recalled from stores and restaurants across nine states, the Associated Press reported Sunday.

The FDA said the illnesses prompted an inspection of the Hyde County farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day.

Rose Acre Farms responded to the discovery by voluntarily going through with the recall, and halting production of eggs.

More than 200 million eggs under several brand names have been recslled because of fears of salmonella, the Food and Drug Administration announced.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a notice about the recall Friday, warning consumers that 22 illnesses have been reported in states along the east coast of the US because of the eggs. "Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund". The plant number is P-105, with the Julian date range of 011 through 012 printed on either side of the carton or package.

The notice says the recalled eggs include varieties sold in Food Lion and Walmart stores, and served at Waffle House restaurants.


Most people who get sick develop diarrhea, a fever, and abdominal cramps within 8 to 72 hours.

Salmonella infections sicken 1.2 million people in the USA every year, leading to 23,000 hospitalizations and 450 deaths.

In some cases, diarrhea can be so dehydrating that it might require prompt medical attention. The agency said that it had not yet identified a grower, supplier, distributor or brand common to the 35 cases of infection across 11 states, so it urged consumers to avoid any chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma area.

Salmonella can come from contaminated animal products such as beef, poultry, milk and eggs, as well as fruits and vegetables.

It noted, "The Hyde County farm has never before experienced a recall or serious safety violation", adding that the recall "was conducted in full cooperation with the FDA".

Rose Acre Farms described it self since the egg producer at the usa. In severe cases, people can suffer arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.
