Shell Eggs Recalled After Twenty-two People Sickened with Salmonella Infections

Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana, is recalling 206,749,248 shell eggs because they may be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup. There are reports that twenty-two people have been sickened with this type of bacteria.

The FDA recall notice states that “The voluntary recall was a result of some illnesses reported on the U.S. East Coast, which led to extensive interviews and eventually a thorough FDA inspection of the Hyde County farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day. The facility includes 3 million laying hens with a USDA inspector on-site daily.”

You can see the long list of recalled products, along with the package sizes and the carton UPC numbers, at the FDA web site. The products include the brands of Country Daybreak, Food Lion eggs, Loose USDA, Nelms A Jumbo, Waffle House Loose, Crystal Farms, Coburn Farms, Sunshine Farms, Glenview, and Great Value. The eggs were sold in packages and loose.

The eggs, from plant number P-1065, have the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102 printed on either the side portion or the principle side of the carton or package. It looks like: Lot Codes 011 – 102. The eggs were distributed from the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina and were sold in these states:┬áColorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery.

If you have purchased any of these eggs, do not use them, even if you plan to cook with them. If they are contaminated, they can cross-contaminate your refrigerator, other foods in the fridge, countertops, utensils, and other surfaces in the kitchen. Throw them away in a double wrapped package or sealed bag, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, nausea, stomach cramps and abdominal cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody. People usually start feeling ill 12 to 72 hours after they have eaten food contaminated with this bacteria. Most people do recover without medical care, but some do need hospitalization. We don’t know if anyone has been hospitalized in this particular outbreak.

    Yes my name is Stephen and I bought 2 dozen of the grade A large eggs from Food Lion with barcode number ( 3582608958) and I noticed after we ate (4) eggs out of the first dozen and my mom baked two cakes and made deviled eggs from the second dozen only two days ago. I just seen this post yesterday after I just got done eating two eggs . But what do I need to do.

    • Linda Larsen says:

      If any of you feel sick, especially with vomiting or diarrhea, see your doctor. Throw out the rest of the eggs, or take them back to the store for a refund. Not all of the eggs will be contaminated, and cooking and baking them thoroughly destroys the bacteria.
