The FDA has recalled 228 million eggs from Wright Country Egg from Galt, Iowa. There have been reports of related illness from the eggs involved in the recall. Salmonella poisoning can lead to diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting in healthy people but can be fatal for people with weak immune systems.
The eggs were distributed to companies, wholesalers and distribution centers nationwide. Thirteen different brand-names for the recalled eggs have been used: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps. Plant Numbers P1026, P1413 and P1946, can be found on the 6, 12 and 18-egg cartons along with Julian numbers of 136 and 225.
If you have eggs affected by this recall, take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.
On Wednesday, health officials dramatically expanded the recall by 32 million dozen-egg cartons, making the total recalled eggs 380 million. Hundreds of people have gotten sick from salmonella poisoning, but no deaths have been reported.
