More people sickened by egg recall

More people sickened by egg recall

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced this week that of the 35 people who fell ill from the salmonella outbreak, 11 had to be hospitalized.

Salmonella from eggs has sickened almost three dozen people, 11 of them requiring hospitalization, as an outbreak continues to spread since a multi-state recall of more than 200 million eggs in April.

These eggs were sold under multiple brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value (sold at Walmart), Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms, and Sunups. The cases have been reported in nine states: West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. FDA analysis of the samples revealed that the same rare strain of Salmonella Braenderup that caused the illnesses was present at the Hyde County Egg facility, tying the facility to the outbreak. Illnesses have been reported in all of the states, the majority of which were from NY and Virginia, the CDC said. However, the CDC warns that the can be fatal in especially old or young populations, or others who have compromised immune systems. Twelve more people reported being infected from April 13 to May 9.

FDA explained that the eggs come in packaging from plant number P-1065 and with a date range of 011 by the date of 102 stamped on the carton.

Almost 50 people have been sickened by the contaminated eggs.

Initially, the FDA indicated in April that 22 illnesses had been reported.

If you have eggs included in this recall, the FDA urges you to immediately discontinue use and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. When the agency's health inspectors did a site visit in March, they reportedly found over a dozen rodents crawling around, and also saw employees handle dirty equipment and touch their bodies without washing their hands afterward.

The good news is that no reports of a person dying due to the current outbreak have been reported yet.
