Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms recalled nearly 200 million eggs in nine states because of the potential contamination of Salmonella Braenderup.
According to a Food and Drug Administration statement on April 15, the eggs were distributed from a farm in Hyde County, North Carolina to Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery.
“Consumers with these eggs shouldn’t eat them,” Scott Gottlieb, MD, commissioner of the FDA tweeted. “Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund.”
At least 22 illnesses have been reported as of April 13. The FDA testing determined the recalled eggs were connected to the people becoming ill.
Brands that include Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms, Crystal Farms, Sunshine Farms and Glenview are among those that could be affected by the recall.
