Half a billion eggs recalled for salmonella
The Food and Drug Administration has officially recalled over 550 million eggs from Wright County and Hillandale egg farms in Iowa for possibly containing salmonella bacteria. Salmonella can get into a person’s gastrointestinal system when consumed in a defective food product and cause food poisoning.
The recalls came after over 1,200 complaints of salmonella food poisoning related to Wright County and Hillandale’s eggs since May. The recall affects eggs sold under the brand names: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms, and Kemps. The majority of food poisoning cases reported were clustered in Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.
