Six in Pennsylvania sick from shell egg salmonella outbreak

A salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of 207 million eggs has worsened - with 35 people reported ill in several states, federal health officials said.

The agency gave the last update on April 16, when it reported 23 people were ill. Eleven people have been hospitalized due to the outbreak.

The FDA says that people should avoid consuming certain eggs that originated from Rose Acre Farms in Hyde County, North Carolina. You can find more information about the egg recall through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

According to the FDA, these eggs were sold and repackaged under multiple brand names including Great Value, Coburn Farms, Publix, Glenview and Food Lion among others. Also, they were delivered directly to restaurants.

Most of the illnesses were reported in eight states along the East Coast; New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida reported cases.

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. One case was also reported in Colorado.

Salmonella can cause serious and possibly fatal infections, especially in young children and the elderly.

The symptoms, which include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, take about 12-72 hours after exposure to take effect.

Check egg cartons for the following numbers: P-1065 (the plant number) and another set of numbers between 011 and 102 (the Julian date), or, for Publix and Sunups egg cartons, plant number P-1359D and Julian date 048A or 049A with Best By dates of April 02 and April 03.
