Recall alert: 206 million eggs recalled from Hyde Co. farm

Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms issued a voluntary recall out of "an abundance of caution".

A farm based out of IN has voluntarily recalled more than 200 million eggs Saturday because they may have been contaminated with Salmonella, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

A salmonella outbreak associated with eggs prompted one of the largest egg recalls in recent years Saturday, over 206 million eggs sold under nine different brands in nine states. Those states include Florida, Colorado, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

Twenty-two illnesses have been reported. In rare circumstances, exposure to salmonella can lead to arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis if the organism enters the blood stream.

Salmonella can cause serious, and sometimes fatal, infections in young children, elderly, or others with weakened immune systems.

Among the brands, stores and restaurants listed in the recall, were Great Value, Food Lion and Waffle House.

The eggs that are part of the recall can be identified by the plant number, P-1065, with the Julian date range of 011 through 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package.

Those with recalled eggs should toss them or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. If you have questions, call Rose Acre Farms at 855-215-5730 between 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. EST.
