Egg Recall Largest Seen in Several Years

More than 200 million eggs have been recalled over concern of salmonella poisoning.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Rose Acre Farms has recalled the shell eggs in connection with 22 cases of salmonella. The affected eggs came from Rose Acre’s Hyde County, N.C., production farm, and were distributed to consumers in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.

However, some of the lot carton numbers of eggs being recalled have appeared in southern Ohio as well, including under the label "Great Value".

The recall is one of the largest for eggs since 2010.

Salmonella is a bacterial infection typically contracted by eating or drinking contaminated food or water, according to the Mayo Clinic. Some who acquire the infection show no symptoms, while others have gastrointestinal distress. The disease can be life-threatening if the infection spreads beyond the intestines.
