35 confirmed cases of salmonella reported stemming from Hyde. Co. egg recall

Salmonella is a bacteria that can be found on the inside of contaminated eggs and on eggshells, too. In 1990, three separate outbreaks that sickened about 450 people in three states were traced back to Rose Acre Farms.

Rose Acre Farms in IN voluntarily recalled 206,749,248 eggs due to potential contamination with Salmonella Braenderup, the Food and Drug Administration said in a statement.

There have been no deaths reported from the salmonella outbreak. The recalled eggs were sold under brand names such as Great Value, Country Daybreak and Crystal Farms.

No one should eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs; any eggs affected by the recall should be thrown away or returned for a full refund. Since then, there have been 12 more cases added to the outbreak. Those who were sick range from the age of 1 to 90 years old.

The CDC notes that there may be a discrepancy in those who have reported illness because it takes an average of two to four weeks for people to become ill and report about it.

The CDC said the outbreak impacted 11 states, including 8 in NY, 5 in North Carolina, 8 in Virginia, 6 in Pennsylvania, 3 in SC and 1 case in Colorado, West Virginia, and New Jersey. For Publix and Sunups egg cartons, people should check their cartoons for plant number P-1359D and Julian date 048A or 049A with best By dates of April 2 and April 3. This means from January 11 to April 12.

Egg cartons with the following numbers were impacted: P-1065 (the plant number) and numbers between 011 and 102. A few days after it was first announced, according to the FDA, Cal-Maine foods also voluntarily recalled 23,400 eggs purchased from Rose Acre Farms. "Rose Acre Farms takes food safety and the welfare of our hens, workers, and consumers very seriously".

In April, the Food and Drug Administration ordered a mandatory recall of kratom products manufactured by Las Vegas-based Triangle Pharmanaturals after investigators found that numerous products contained salmonella.
