Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Massive Egg Recall Worsens With 12 More Sickened

Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Massive Egg Recall Worsens With 12 More Sickened

That brings the total number of people who have been sickened from the contaminated eggs to 35, with 11 of them having been hospitalized. That is up from the five cases reported as of April 13.

The eggs went to stores and restaurants in New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. They were available at major grocery stores including Walmart and Food Lion.

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 eggs were delivered to multiple supermarket chains and even directly to some restaurants.

As noted in a report from the Tampa Patch, the salmonella outbreak was traced to eggs from Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County, North Carolina, farm, and were sold under a variety of brand names, including Country Daybreak, Crystal Farms, and Great Value. No deaths have been reported, according to the CDC.

Officials said more illnesses could be reported from people who ate the bad eggs after March 23. The possibly tainted eggs were distributed from the farm between January 11 and April 12. Symptoms usually include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps which set in about 12 to 72 hours after infection, and last four to seven days.

Simpson is in the territory whereby conceding this tournament would be wounding enough were it not the PGA Tour's flagship event. Jordan Spieth was also among the early starters and, like Woods, sprinted up the leaderboard thanks also to a seven-under 65.

Salmonella causes serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

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

Salmonella can contaminate the breakfast food product when infected chickens transfer the foodborne bacteria to the eggs before the shells are formed, the Centers for Disease Control reported.

For a full list of recalled brands, consumers are urged to check the Food and Drug Administration's website.
