Egg Recall 2018: 200M eggs recalled over salmonella fears in 9 states

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. At least 22 illnesses in the East Coast linked to the eggs have been reported so far.

According to the release, no matter the packaging, the affected eggs will be marked as coming from plant number P-1065 and will fall in the Julian date range of 011 through 102. The recall includes eggs sold in Florida.

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.

Healthy people affected with the illness can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The recall is the largest of eggs in the USA since 2010, when more than 550 million eggs were recalled from two Iowa farms, according to the website Food Safety News.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service, if not washed and sanitized properly, salmonella can latch onto the outside of the egg's shell because the egg exits the hen's body through the same passageway as feces is excreted.

More than 200 million eggs were recalled by an IN farm operation after a report of 22 illnesses IN connection with a salmonella outbreak.
