Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana issued a voluntary recall on Sunday of more than 200 million eggs after an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The eggs had a potential of being contaminated with salmonella and were connected to 23 cases of infections, including one in South Carolina.
Eggs were distributed from the company's farm in Hyde County, N.C., which produces 2.3 million eggs a day. The Washington Post quoted food safety attorney Bill Marler characterizing the recall as the largest since 2010.
Six people have been hospitalized in connection with the outbreak, but no deaths had been reported as of Monday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The eggs were distributed under the brand names of Country Daybreak, Crystal Farms, Coburn Farms, Glenview, Great Value and Sunshine Farms. Waffle House and Food Lion supermarkets also received some of the potentially contaminated eggs.
If you have eggs from plant number P-1065 with Lot Codes 011-102, you should either destroy the eggs or return them for a refund.
