What You Need to Know About the Massive Egg Recall

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. The eggs came from Rose Acre's Hyde County Farm in North Carolina.

The figure marks an increase of 12 new salmonella cases since CDC first announced the outbreak almost a month ago.
