Eggs Sold In CNY Among Those Recalled in Salmonella Scare
If you recently purchased eggs, get ready to check the cartons. 206 million eggs, including some sold in CNY are being recalled over salmonella concerns.
The eggs originated at Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana and were sold at grocery stores, including Walmart. They eggs are being voluntarily recalled because eggs "they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune system," according to the notice from the FDA.
According to the FDA, "healthy individuals infected with SalmonellaBraenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella Braenderup can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis."
22 illnesses have been reported to date.
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.
Consumers who have purchased shells eggs are urged to immediately discontinue use of the recalled eggs and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (855) 215-5730 between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Standard time.
