200 million eggs recalled over salmonella contamination fears

An Indiana-based farm is voluntarily recalling 206,749,248 eggs over fears of a potential Salmonella Braenderup contamination, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The eggs were distributed from a farm in North Carolina's Hyde County and reached people in a number of states through retail departments and restaurants. The eggs were sold under the brands Country Daybreak, Sunshine Farms, Coburn Farms, Crystal Farms, Glenview and Great Value.

The FDA says 22 people have reported falling ill.

The FDA's website includes a list of carton UPC codes that consumers can check. Healthy individuals can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said Sunday in a Twitter message.

Anyone who purchased contaminated eggs is asked to return them to the store and get a full refund.

The recall is equivalent to nearly 10 days production at the farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day.

Twenty-two illnesses have been reported so far.

The recall is the largest in the United States since 2010, according to Food Safety News. That led them to an egg farm in Hyde County, N.C., owned by Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Ind. The eggs have been sold in various stores, including Food Lion and Walmart. If you have questions, call Rose Acre Farms at 855-215-5730 between 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. EST. The farm has 3 million laying hens with a USDA inspector on-site daily, the agency said.
