200 million eggs recalled because of salmonella concerns
RALEIGH, N.C. - More than 200 million eggs from a North Carolina farm have been recalled because of bacterial contamination.
A notice posted on the Food & Drug Administration website Friday says the eggs shipped to restaurants and grocery stores in nine states may be tainted with salmonella. The bacteria causes nausea, diarrhea and, in rare cases, death. Twenty-two illnesses have been reported.
The eggs were distributed from a farm in eastern North Carolina's Hyde County by Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms.
The notice says the recalled eggs include varieties sold in Food Lion and Walmart stores, and served at Waffle House restaurants.
The recall came about after the illnesses were reported and the FDA inspected the North Carolina farm.
Rose Acre Farms officials didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
