Egg Recall from the Food and Drug Administration

Recalls, Market Withdrawals, & Safety Alerts > Rose Acre Farms Recalls Shell Eggs Due to Possible Health Risk                                                                


Through  an abundance of caution Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana is  voluntarily recalling 206,749,248 eggs because they have the potential to be  contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, an organism which can cause  serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly  people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals infected  with Salmonella Braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea,  nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella Braenderup can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and  producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected  aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The  eggs were distributed from the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina and reached  consumers in the following states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York,  North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia  through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery.

22  illnesses have been reported to date. 

The  affected eggs, from plant number P-1065 with  the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102 printed on either the side  portion or the principal side of the carton or package, as follows: 

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  facility includes 3 million laying hens with a USDA inspector on-site daily. 

Consumers  who have purchased shells eggs are urged to immediately discontinue use of the  recalled eggs and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.  Consumers with questions may contact the company at (855) 215-5730 between the  hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Standard time.
