Following on from our earlier post, which informed you of the huge egg recall that is now underway in the US, we now have some further details for consumers, information which is important for those affected in any way.

We now have some fresh details from the Egg Safety Center, in relation to the recall issued by Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa. It has now been revealed that the affected eggs were sold to distribution centers, foodservice companies and food wholesalers, across a span of different areas.

Some of these places include California, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Colorado, Minnesota, Nebraska and Wisconsin. If you think you have spotted these eggs, you’ll find Julian dates ranging from 136 to 225 and plant numbers 1026, 1413 and 1946 as stated in our previous report.

Furthermore, the affected eggs will be packaged in 6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons and 18-egg cartons. More information on salmonella risks can be seen in our previous article here.

Do you own any of the affected egg products? If so, let us know your thoughts on this recall.

    Why bother with this relatively unimportant information?

    What people want to see is the list of Product Numbers that are recalled — those numbers that are printed on each carton. The whole list, please!
