Nearly 207 million eggs from a farm in North Carolina are being recalled from nine U.S. states after 22 people fell ill, the federal FDA has said.
The eggs may have been contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail, or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems, the FDA said on April 13 in a statement.
The eggs were recalled by producer Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana “through an abundance of caution,” the FDA’s statement said.
The eggs were distributed from a farm in Hyde County, North Carolina.
The eggs reached consumers in Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New Jersey, Virginia, Colorado, South Carolina, and West Virginia.
