People Sickened With Salmonella Streak, Recall 207 Million Eggs in US

  • Six in Pennsylvania sick from shell egg salmonella outbreak

The salmonella outbreak has been linked to eggs distributed by Rose Acre Farms, a family-owned company based in IN that claims itself to be the second-largest egg producer in the United States.

Six people in Pennsylvania have gotten sick from a national shell egg salmonella outbreak, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The recall is the largest since 2010, when a major salmonella outbreak tied to Iowa egg farms sickened more than 1,500 people, said Bill Marler, a Seattle-based personal injury attorney who focuses on food-borne illness litigation. The eggs were sold by Walmart, among other leading USA retailers, and were recalled on April 13. The Food and Drug Administration has a list of all of the recalled brands on its outbreak investigation page.

Brands affected include Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms, Crystal Farms, Cal-Maine Foods, Inc., Sunshine Farms and Glenview, with some eggs sold at Walmart, Publix and Food Lion stores. The outbreak spread to almost 40 states and sickened 132 people.

The outbreak has been linked to eggs distributed by Rose Acre Farms, a family-owned business based in IN that describes itself as the second-largest egg producer in the U.S.

The CDC announced last week that it "continues to recommend consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm". Another 22 people said they ate shelled eggs before contracting salmonella, the CDC reported.

Salmonella can cause serious and even deadly infections in children or elderly adults.

Chickens can pass the bacteria to eggs because eggs leave hens through the same passageway as feces.

Salmonella braenderup is a bacteria that can be found in raw foods and causes symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever, usually about 12 to 72 hours after infection, though the illness can sometimes take weeks to develop.

There is aditional information on the recall on the FDA website and the CDC website.
