2018 salmonella outbreak in the US

The CDC reports that 35 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup have been reported from 9 states: Colorado (1), Florida (2), New Jersey (1), NY (8), North Carolina (5), Pennsylvania (6), SC (3), Virginia (8), and West Virginia (1).

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm.

In 2010, a salmonella outbreak sickened hundreds and led to the recall of half a billion eggs.

Brands affected include Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms, Sunshine Farms, Great Value and Glenview. They were also sold to restaurants.

Another 12 people have become sick in the massive raw chicken egg recall.

The eggs come from a single source, Rose Acre Farms in North Carolina. 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.

"We have already implemented numerous remedial actions and have not only corrected deficiencies at the farm, but we've also taken other steps to ensure the farm meets or exceeds the standards by the FDA and USDA [US Department of Agriculture]", the company said in a statement sent to the Washington Post (paywall).

The FDA has said the eggs could be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, a potentially severe and fatal strain of the bacteria, particularly for young children, older adults and those with weakened immune systems.

The grocery stores are located in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.

Symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
