More than 200 million eggs recalled, fear of salmonella contamination

The FDA emphasises that this recall was voluntary and followed an FDA inspection of the farm which is reported to have approximately 3 million laying hens producing 2.3 million eggs a day with a USDA inspector undertaking daily inspections.

Further, officials said that eggs emerging from this farm were likely connected to 22 reported cases of salmonella infections.

The notice said Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms was voluntarily recalling the eggs "through an abundance of caution".

More than 200 million eggs are under recall over fears of salmonella contamination. The bacteria can infect the egg while still in a chicken's ovary, CNN noted, or while leaving the same passageway as the bird's feces. The egg cartons affected by the recall are most likely labeled with the plant number P-1065, with packing dates ranging from 011 through 102, according to the New York Times.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb tweeted.

The recall arose after illnesses were reported in East Coast states.

They were sold under the brand names Country Daybreak, Crystal Farms, Coburn Farms, Sunshine Farms, Glenview and Great Value; and at Walmart and Food Lion stores. Numerous eggs were sold in Food Lions stores.

Symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain. The eggs were sold in supermarkets and to restaurants. People who bought the eggs are asked to immediately stop using them and return them to the place where they were purchased or thrown away.

"The eggs that are in the stores today are safe", she said by phone.
