Postado Abril 16, 2018

Rose Acre Farms in Seymour, Indiana voluntarily recalled 206,749,248 eggs due to the health scare, the FDA said in an announcement Friday.

The Food & Drug Administration said eggs from a North Carolina farm may be tainted with salmonella, sickening at least 22 people.

Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia received eggs through retail stores and restaurants, the statement said.

It's the largest egg recall in the United States since 2010, according to Food Safety News. Also, healthy individuals infected with Salmonella Braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Check your eggs! There's a massive recall of 200 million eggs over fears of salmonella.

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

The recalled eggs will have a date range between 011 and 102 printed on the carton, according to the FDA.

The infections were first reported in early March, and a lab on April 11 confirmed that a sample from the Hyde County farm matched a strain that was spurring the illness, the FDA said.

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

Those who purchased the potentially affected eggs are advised by the agency to return them to the point of goal for a full refund.

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.

The disease usually lasts between 4 and 7 days and in most cases does not require any treatment. Children are the most at-risk.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them".
