Over 200 Million Eggs Recalled After East Coast Salmonella Outbreak

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said to date 22 people have been sickened by the eggs

Understandably, the news about potentially contaminated eggs causing the largest egg recall since 2010 has people anxious, and many are wondering how Salmonella even gets into eggs at their local grocery stores in the first place.

IN farmers have issued a warning after at least 22 people have fallen ill. The affected eggs came from plant number P-1065 with the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102 printed on the package. Alternatively, bacteria in the hen's ovary or oviduct can get to the egg before the shell forms around it, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

After seeing news reports the following day about a massive egg recall due to potential salmonella contamination, she knew her family would be counted among the illnesses reported to the FDA.

In 2010, a salmonella outbreak sickened hundreds and led to the recall of half a billion eggs. The possibly tainted eggs were distributed from the farm between January 11 and April 12.


The recalled eggs were distributed to supermarkets and restaurants across nine states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, the Food and Drug Administration announced in a statement. At times, infections could be fatal, especially in young children or elderly people.

The possibly contaminated eggs were sold under the brand names Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms, Crystal Farms, Sunshine Farms, Glenview, Walmart, and Food Lion. Infected people typically develop diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours but most people recover without medical treatment. The bacteria can also cause arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis on rare occasions.
