BREAKING NEWS: Everyone Is Checking Their Fridge After Salmonella-linked Recall Impacts 206 Million Eggs

Stacks of eggs in cartons

After 22 reported cases of Salmonella infection, the FDA investigated and traced the source to eggs from a Rose Acre Farms facility in Hyde County, North Carolina. The discovery resulted in the voluntary recall of over 206 million eggs found in both stores and restaurants, amounting to the largest recall since 2010. Rose Acre Farms supplies many brands, including:

  • Coburn Farms
  • Country Daybreak
  • Crystal Farms
  • Food Lion
  • Glenview
  • Great Value
  • Nelms
  • Sunshine Farms

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb warned consumers in a tweet Saturday afternoon, urging shoppers to “Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund.”

Residents should be especially cautious in the following states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. For a full list of recalled UPCs, see the full FDA press release.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach pain. Though healthy individuals often recover after 4–7 days, the risk of a potentially lethal infection increases for the young, elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
