200 Million Eggs Recalled in the US

Rose Acre Farm’s Hyde County Farm in Indiana voluntarily recalled 207 million eggs sold in nine states due to potential contamination with Salmonella Braenderup. According to the Food and Drug Administration, at least 22 contaminations resulted by the eggs have been reported, but no death was announced so far. The eggs were sold to customers in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants. “Recalled eggs were sold under multiple brands including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glen View, Great Value, Nelms, and Sunshine Farms,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb tweeted, “Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund.” Salmonella Braenderup is a bacteria passed to eggs from chickens, and they are generally contracted by consuming contaminated poultry, meat, eggs and water. They can cause fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain, and can be fatal to young children and elderly with weakened immune systems.
