Dozens sickened across the country due to salmonella outbreak traced to eggs


A salmonella outbreak traced to eggs continues to grow, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to a release from the CDC, “consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms’ Hyde County farm.”

According to the CDC, 35 people from nine states have been sickened.

Eleven people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported.

The cases were reported in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

The eggs were reportedly sold under the following brand names:

  • Great Value
  • Food Lion
  • Publix
  • Coburn Farms
  • Country Daybreak
  • Glenview
  • Nelms
  • Sunshine Farms
  • Sunups

If you have any of these eggs, the CDC advises that you should:

  • Throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
  • Wash and sanitize drawers or shelves in refrigerators where recalled eggs were stored. Follow these five steps to clean your refrigerator.
