12 more people sickened by contaminated eggs from North Carolina farm

Six in Pennsylvania sick from shell egg salmonella outbreak

Six in Pennsylvania sick from shell egg salmonella outbreak

A salmonella outbreak that led to a multi-state recall of more than 200 million eggs has worsened in recent weeks. Eleven people were hospitalized and there were no fatalities.

The CDC said the outbreak impacted 11 states, including 8 in NY, 5 in North Carolina, 8 in Virginia, 6 in Pennsylvania, 3 in SC and 1 case in Colorado, West Virginia, and New Jersey.

Public health officials expect additional cases to be confirmed because of the lag time from the time a person develops symptoms to the time the CDC receives confirmation lab reports and notifications from state and local officials. In response, the farm has recalled over 207 million eggs, some of which were distributed to restaurants or were sold at major grocery stores such as Walmart, Target, Publix, and Food Lion.

In April, Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Ind., voluntarily recalled 206,749,248 eggs because they could be contaminated with salmonella.

The brands affected include Great Value, Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Nelms, publix, Sunshine Farms and Sunups. "We vow to do better in the future".

Rose Acre Farms sued, and a few years later a federal judge ruled that the government had overstepped its boundaries and had to compensate the company for income lost as a result of regulations.

The outbreak was originally announced April 16 and traced to eggs from Rose Acre Farms, which suffered three similar incidents in 1990 that left 450 people in three states sick. In response, the government prohibited the company from selling eggs from three IN farms where the contaminated eggs originated and required expensive cleanups that threatened to put the company out of business. Days later, Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. issued its own recall for 23,400 dozen eggs that it bought from the farm. Another 22 people said they ate shelled eggs before contracting salmonella, the CDC reported.

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