We have some worrying news to bring you now, as it has been confirmed via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that an egg recall has now been launched across the US.
According to this report by USAToday, the recall is due to an ongoing outbreak of salmonella, which has sickened hundreds of people since May, according to the CDC. Worst of all, the problem appears to be still ongoing, but has now been tracked to in-shell eggs from Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa.
Wright County Eggs sell their products to a number of brand names. These include Albertson, Lucerne, Sunshine, Mountain Dairy, Dutch Farms, Ralph’s, Hillandale, Boomsma’s, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund and Kemps.
If you have recently bought egg products from one of the brand names listed above, you should look out for plant numbers P-1026, P-1413 and P-1946 which are contained on the packaging. You can return the eggs to where you bought them for a full refund.
Let us know your thoughts on the egg recall – are you worried? Full report over at USAToday.
