The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an update Thursday on the salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of about 200 million eggs produced by an IN farm. Thirty-five people from nine states have gotten sick in total, with 11 people sent to the hospital. No deaths have been reported.

Contaminated eggs were sold under multiple brand names including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms, and Sunups.

A salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of 207 million eggs has worsened - with 35 people reported ill in several states, federal health officials said. You can find more information about the egg recall through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The outbreak has been linked to eggs distributed by Rose Acre Farms, a family-owned business based in IN that describes itself as the second-largest egg producer in the U.S.

Nine states have reported illnesses: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and SC.

The CDC said last week that it "continues to recommend consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm". The eggs were sold by Walmart, among other leading USA retailers, and were recalled on April 13. In response, the government prohibited the company from selling eggs from three IN farms where the contaminated eggs originated and required expensive cleanups that threatened to put the company out of business.

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

Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella Braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Ill people range in age from 1 to 90 years old, with a median age of 65.

In April, the Food and Drug Administration ordered a mandatory recall of kratom products manufactured by Las Vegas-based Triangle Pharmanaturals after investigators found that numerous products contained salmonella. One person died, according to the CDC.
