United States recalls 200 million eggs over food poisoning

More than 200 million eggs from a North Carolina farm are being recalled over fears they're contaminated with salmonella, the Food & Drug Administration warned.

The illnesses were reported in states on the U.S. East Coast, leading the FDA to conduct extensive interviews. The recall is equivalent to nearly 10 days production at the farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day.

That led to an inspection of the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina that produced the eggs.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said Sunday in a Twitter message.

It is the largest recall of eggs in the United States since 2010, the Food Safety News website reported.


The notice says the recalled eggs include varieties sold in Food Lion and Walmart stores, and served at Waffle House restaurants.

They have the plant number P-1065 with the date range of 011 through 102 on the carton.

The eggs - also distributed to Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina and West Virginia - have caused at least 22 people to fall ill as of Friday, the FDA said.

Consumers who have purchased shells eggs are urged to immediately discontinue use of the recalled eggs and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Salmonella Braederup is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, the elderly or others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals can experience nausea, vomiting, fever, diarrhea, and stomach pain.
