Salmonella Outbreak Sickens More People Following Multi-State Egg Recall

Salmonella Outbreak Sickens More People Following Multi-State Egg Recall

Late this week, the CDC said it had added 12 more people to the list of people who have been infected with Salmonella Braenderup, stemming from eggs that came from the Rose Acre Farms facility in Hyde County, N.C.

The outbreak led to 11 hospitalizations but no fatalities.

The eggs went to stores and restaurants in New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. NY and Virginia have reported the highest number of cases, with eight each.

And the number of total illnesses is a dozen more since the initial recall notice was issued last month. The eggs were sold under several brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak and Crystal Farms, and were available at large grocery shops like Walmart and Food Lion.

The CDC instructs consumers on how to identify affected products: "Check egg cartons for the following numbers: P-1065 (the plant number) and another set of numbers between 011 and 102 (the Julian date), or, for Publix and Sunups egg cartons, plant number P-1359D and Julian date 048A or 049A with Best By dates of April 02 and April 03". In 1990, three separate outbreaks that sickened about 450 people in three states were traced back to Rose Acre Farms. In a statement to the Indianapolis Star, chief operating officer Tony Wesner said: "We're sorry for any concerns we may have caused consumers because some of our policies fell short of FDA standards, and we vow to do better in the future". "Rose Acre Farms takes food safety and the welfare of our hens, workers, and consumers very seriously".

The outbreak has been linked to eggs distributed by Rose Acre Farms, a family-owned business based in IN that describes itself as the second-largest egg producer in the U.S.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can be found on the inside of contaminated eggs and on eggshells, too. Initially, 22 people were sickened.

Anyone who has had any of the recalled eggs in their homes or restaurants should take intervention action even if no one is known to have become sick after eating them.

Salmonella can cause nausea, diarrhea and, in rare cases, death.
