Salmonella sickens dozens of people after massive recall of 207 million eggs

Salmonella sickens dozens of people after massive recall of 207 million eggs

More salmonella illnesses are being reported following a voluntary recall of more than 200 million eggs from Rose Acre Farms in Seymour.

As per the inputs from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, Salmonella is the sole cause of about 1.2 million illness within the frontiers of the United States alone.

A notice posted on the Food & Drug Administration website Friday said the eggs shipped from a North Carolina farm may be tainted with salmonella.

Rose Acre has come under scrutiny before after three separate outbreaks that left about 450 people sick in three states were traced back to the farm in 1990. The FDA says that they were sold under Walmart, Publix, and Food Lion's store brands, plus a variety of brand names (Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Glenview, Nelms, Sunshine Farms, Sunups), and also turned up in a few restaurant chains like Waffle House.

The grocery stores are located in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Virginia, Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida. Out of the 35 cases, 11 have resulted in people being hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported.

Suarez was stellar in his previous start , limiting the Braves to one run in five innings, leading to his first win of the season. Holland (1-3) collected his first win on the road since last May 21, going 0-9 in 12 outings away from home in the interim.

The company has started retraining employees and created a position called "Corporate Sanitation Manager", the Star reported. In April, the company issued a recall of more than 206 million eggs.

Rose Acre has a history of salmonella outbreaks. DeCoster and his son, Peter DeCoster, each pleaded guilty to one count of introducing adulterated food into interstate commerce.

To see if your eggs are being recalled, please visit FDA.gov to see the specific list of products. Healthy individuals who become infected can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

In March, the CDC investigated another salmonella outbreak that involved raw coconut and sickened 13 people in eight states.

In 2010, a salmonella outbreak led to the massive recall of more than 1 billion eggs from Iowa farms. The outbreak sickened almost one thousand and five hundred people. One person died, according to the CDC.
