9 States, Including Florida, Part Of Massive Egg Recall Due To Salmonella Concerns

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

A full list of affected eggs is listed on the FDA's food recall website.

The eggs from a Rose Acre Farms facility in Hyde County, North Carolina, may be contaminated with a form of salmonella, which can cause serious infection.

Rose Acre Farms is recalling the products after federal officials tied illnesses to the company's facility in North Carolina.

The eggs were delivered from a farm situated in Hyde County, North Carolina and reached in retail stores and restaurants in Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Florida, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia, and Virginia.


Over 200 million eggs are part of the voluntary recall because they might be contaminated with salmonella. So far, at least 22 illnesses related to the contaminated eggs have been reported, according to the FDA.

The FDA says anyone who purchased the eggs should discard them or return them to where they were purchased for a refund. The Julian date - or lot codes - have a range of 011 through date of 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package. The eggs were sold under several names. The eggs were sold to stores and restaurants in nine states.

"Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection", the FDA reports. Some instances require hospitalization and also the illness might be fatal. The agency inspected the farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day from 3 million laying hens. The bacteria causes nausea, diarrhea and, in rare cases, death. DeCoster and his son, Peter DeCoster, each pleaded guilty to one count of introducing adulterated food into interstate commerce.

Avoid consuming raw or undercooked eggs. The more severe illnesses may include arterial infections, infected aneurysms, endocarditis, and arthritis.
