egg salmonella recall

Illnesses are still being reported by people who have consumed eggs contaminated with salmonella. Over 200,000 eggs were recalled in April 2018 by Rose Acres Farms and, subsequently, by Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. The recall was voluntary and was issued after illnesses were reported on the east coast of the US, leading to interviews and an inspection of the Rose Acres Farms’ Hyde County, North Carolina, facility.

To date, a total of 35 people have become ill as a result of food poisoning caused by salmonella contamination. the illnesses have been reported across nine states: Colorado (1), Florida (2), New Jersey (1), New York (8), North Carolina (5), Pennsylvania (6), South Carolina (3), Virginia (8), and West Virginia (1). Eleven people have been hospitalized, with no deaths reported.
