200 million eggs recalled

Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana, announced that it would "voluntarily recall" 206,749,248 eggs shipped throughout the country from their farm in Hyde County, North Carolina.

Rose Acre Farms issued the recall after several people reported illnesses from the eggs and the FDA inspected their North Carolina farm.

That led to an inspection of the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina that produced the eggs.

The eggs were produced at Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County, North Carolina farm and sold to consumers in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Florida, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and SC.

Salmonella is particularly harmful to the elderly and young children, causing symptoms such as abdominal pain, vomiting, fever and diarrhea.

More than half a million eggs were recalled from two Iowa egg farms owned by Quality Egg after a nationwide Salmonella outbreak had infected thousands of people.

The egg cartons needs to be labeled together with packing dates ranging throughout 102 from 011, with the plant range P-1065.

The Center for Disease Control estimates that salmonella infections cause about 1.2 million illnesses and 450 deaths every year in the United States.

The FDA says anyone who purchased the eggs should discard them or return them to where they were purchased for a refund.

Officials confirmed that the affected farm - Rose Acre Farms, which describes itself as the second-largest egg producer in the US - has paused its egg distribution.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Twitter.

If you love eggs from your head to your legs, make sure you check to see if the eggs in your refrigerator are on this recall list. Some instances require hospitalization and also the illness might be fatal.

The largest recall of table eggs happened in 2010.
