206 million eggs recalled over Salmonella fears

Rose Acre Farms in IN voluntarily recalled more than 200 million eggs this week over salmonella fears.

Eggs from the Rose Acre Farms facility in Hyde County, N.C., went to nine states including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida.

The Food & Drug Administration said eggs from a North Carolina farm may be tainted with salmonella, sickening at least 22 people.

Eggs in the Vermont farm were sold to restaurants and also into supermarkets under several new names, including Coburn Farms, State Day Break, Food Lion, Glenview, Excellent worth, Nelms and Sun Shine Farms.

The FDA says anyone who purchased the eggs should discard them or return them to where they were purchased for a refund.

The recall is the largest of shell eggs in the U.S. since 2010, according to Food Safety News.

They and their company, Quality Egg LLC, ended up paying $7 million in fines and both DeCosters served three months in federal prison.

Alternatively, bacteria in the hen's ovary or oviduct can get to the egg before the shell forms around it, according to the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them".

In 2010, more than 550 million table eggs were called from two Iowa egg farms owned by Austin "Jack" DeCoster.

Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella Braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Always wash your hands after handling egg products.
