EGG RECALL: More than 206-million eggs recalled from Hyde County farm


Out of an abundance of caution, more than 206-million eggs produced from a farm in Hyde County are being recalled.

Almost 207 million eggs have been recalled after 22 people have become sick after eating them, according to the Federal and Drug Administration.

"The voluntary recall was a result of some illnesses reported on the U.S. East Coast, which led to extensive interviews and eventually a thorough FDA inspection of the Hyde County farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day", the notice states. The eggs were sold through retail stores and to restaurants via direct delivery.

People infected with Salmonella Braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Others states include Virginia, West Virginia, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Colorado and Florida.

They were sold under the brand names Country Daybreak, Crystal Farms, Coburn Farms, Sunshine Farms, Glenview and Great Value; and at Walmart and Food Lion stores.

Information on product Eggs from Rose Acre Farms will have a plant number - P-1065 and a Julian date range of 011 through 102, printed on the cartons. Consumers who have purchased the recalled eggs should immediately discontinue use of eggs and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Salmonella can cause serious and even deadly infections in children or elderly adults.
