207 Million Eggs Recalled Across US by FDA over Salmonella Concern

There's shocking agricultural news where it appears that a stunning 207 million eggs have been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration from at least eight stages after significant concerns about Salmonella have affected local businesses.

Those eggs were sold to both restaurants and grocery stores across the country, originating from a farm in North Carolina, where at least twenty-two illnesses were reported.

“Consumers with these eggs shouldn’t eat them,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Twitter. “Throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for credit or refund.”

The states which are currently being warned to avoid eggs include Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, as reported by the FDA.

North Carolina’s Hyde County is a major producer of eggs that supply millions of Americans across the country, where FDA Commissioner Gottlieb says investigators were able to track the origins of the outbreak.

Typically, a person who ingests an egg tainted with Salmonella would notice symptoms within 72 hours, which would cause fevers, chills, diarrhea, abdominal pains, and potentially become fatal.

The FDA says that on an annual basis salmonella is estimated to cause 1 million food-borne illnesses in the United States with 19,000 hospitalizations and 380 deaths.

The eggs were sold under the brand names Country Daybreak; Crystal Farms; Coburn Farms; Sunshine Farms; Glenview; Great Value; as well as at Walmart and Food Lion stores.

The recall involves eggs with the plant number P-105, with the Julian date range of 011 through 012 printed on either side of the carton or package.

If you believe you've ingested one of the eggs from any of these potentially contaminated batches, you should seek emergency medical treatment to attempt to combat the symptoms before they peak. Salmonella is however rarely spread from person to person, assuming proper hygiene practices including handwashing is followed.

Up to 90% of salmonella infections in the United States of America are food-borne, according to the Department of Health.
