200 mil­lion eggs re­called in U.S.

Lethbridge Herald - - HEADLINE NEWS | WEATHER -

More than 200 mil­lion eggs from a North Carolina farm have been re­called be­cause of bac­te­rial con­tam­i­na­tion.

A no­tice posted on the Food & Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion web­site Fri­day says the eggs shipped to restau­rants and gro­cery stores in nine states may be tainted with sal­mo­nella. The bac­te­ria causes nau­sea, di­ar­rhea and, in rare cases, death. Twen­tytwo ill­nesses have been re­ported.

The eggs were dis­trib­uted from a farm in east­ern North Carolina’s Hyde County by In­di­ana-based Rose Acre Farms.

The no­tice says the re­called eggs in­clude va­ri­eties sold in Food Lion and Wal­mart stores, and served at Waf­fle House restau­rants.

The re­call came about af­ter the ill­nesses were re­ported and the FDA in­spected the North Carolina farm.

Rose Acre Farms of­fi­cials didn’t im­me­di­ately re­spond to a mes­sage seek­ing com­ment.
