Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Recalled Gravel Ridge Farms Eggs in AL, GA, TN

A Salmonella outbreak has been announced in a recall of Gravel Ridge Farms Cage Free Large Eggs by the FDA. The announcement did not state the number of people sickened, where they live, age ranges, or if anyone was hospitalized.

Gravel Ridge Farms Eggs Salmonella Outbreak

The firm was notified by the FDA on September 6, 2018 that their eggs may be contaminated with Salmonella. The recalled product is Gravel Ridge Farms Large Cage Free Eggs, in single dozen and 2.5 dozen flats. The UPC on the product is 7-06970-38444-6, and the use-by dates on the eggs are 7/25/18 though 10/3/18. The eggs were sold between 6/25/2018 and 9/6/6/2018.

The eggs were sold mostly in restaurants and retail stores in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. In Atlanta, these stores carried the eggs: Candler Park Market, Grant Park Market, Westview Corner Market, Sevananda Natural Foods, and The Merchantile. In Birmingham, Alabama, these stores carried the recalled eggs: Piggly Wiggly in Clairemont, Piggly Wiggly River Run, Piggly Wiggly in Crestline, Piggly Wiggly in Bluff Park, Piggly Wiggly in Dunnavent Valley, Piggly Wiggly in Warrior, Piggly Wiggly in Homewood, Western Market in Mt. Brook, Western Market in Rocky Ridge, Foodland in Eva, Warehouse Discount Grocery in Hanceville, Warehouse Discount Grocery at two locations in Cullman, Foodland in Priceville, Star Market in Huntsville, and Manna Grocery in Tuscaloosa. There is no listing of the stores that sold the eggs in Tennessee.

Food safety attorney Fred Pritzker, who has represented many clients with Salmonella infections linked to eggs, said, “No one should get sick because they decided to have eggs for breakfast. This is the second Salmonella outbreak linked to eggs in 2018.”

The company has stopped producing and distributing the eggs while FDA officials conduct an investigation into the problem. If you bought these eggs, return them to the store for a refund or throw them away in a sealed package. In fact, the FDA notice states, “If any consumers have Gravel Ridge Farms eggs in their refrigerator, they should be discarded, regardless of the date stamped on the package.”

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, nausea, abdominal pain and cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Some people may become seriously ill if the infection gets into the bloodstream. If you have eaten eggs and live in those states and are sick, see your doctor.
