12 more people sickened by contaminated eggs from North Carolina farm

Officials said more illnesses could be reported from people who ate the bad eggs after March 23.

More illnesses have been reported in connection to a salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of more than 206 million eggs last month. Eleven people have been hospitalized for complications related to the infections, the CDC said, but no deaths have been reported. Eggs that started the outbreak were recalled in April due to possible contamination of bacteria. CDC recommends that people just throw the eggs away or try to return the eggs for a refund. These eggs were sold under multiple brand names at numerous retailers, both in the USA and overseas.

The CDC's salmonella fact sheet states that the bacteria is responsible for about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths each year in the USA, with over 80 percent of the illnesses traced to tainted food. The median age for those that are sick is 65 years old.

People in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Colorado were also affected.

Consumers, restaurants and retailers are still advised not to eat, serve or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm.

The recall involves eggs with the plant number P-1065, with the Julian date range of 011 through 102 printed on either side of the carton or package. This means from January 11 to April 12.

Some 207 millions eggs were voluntarily recalled in April by Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Ind., because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella braenderup, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others who have weakened immune systems.

For Publix and Sunups egg cartons: Plant number P-1359D, with numbers 048A or 049A and best by dates of April 2 and 3. You can find more information about the egg recall through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

"We're disheartened by the additional reported illnesses in recent days and we apologize to anyone who may have been sickened or who has a family member or friend who may have taken ill because of any of our eggs", Gene Grabowski, a representative for Rose Acre Farms, told The Daily Meal.
