More Than 200 Million Eggs in Nine States – Including NY and NJ – Recalled Over Salmonella Fears


The Food and Drug Administration is sounding the alarm over millions of eggs sold in at least nine U.S. states that may be contaminated with salmonella. Rose Acre Farms, an Indiana farm that supplies eggs to numerous retail chains, has voluntarily recalled nearly 207 million eggs as a result of the potential contamination. “Consumers with these eggs shouldn’t eat them,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb warned on Twitter late Saturday. “Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund.”

The eggs were sold under the brands Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms, Crystal Farms, Sunshine Farms, among others. So far, they have reached consumers in New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, according to the FDA. At least 22 illnesses have already been reported. Read more at CNN.
