IN farmers have issued a warning after at least 22 people have fallen ill. In 1990, the egg producer was linked to three separate salmonella outbreaks that sickened hundreds of people, the paper reported.
A salmonella outbreak that led to the multi-state recall in April of more than 200 million eggs has worsened in recent weeks, with the number of people sickened by the bacteria rising to nearly three dozen.
While the eggs were recalled in April it is being reported that people began falling ill as early as November 2017 and are still getting ill as recently as last month. This brought the number of people sickened by the salmonella outbreak to 35 across nine states.
In addition to New Jersey, the eggs were sold in Colorado, Florida, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Thiem, Zverev advance to Madrid final
Zverev, 21, took less than an hour to see off Shapovalov, 19, the youngest player to reach the semi-finals in Madrid. Second-seeded Alexander Zverev beat seventh-seeded John Isner 6-4, 7-5 to also advance.
The outbreak has been linked to eggs distributed by Rose Acre Farms, a family-owned business based in IN that describes itself as the second-largest egg producer in the U.S. Another 22 people said they ate shelled eggs before contracting salmonella, the CDC reported. Rose Acre's North Carolina farm produces about 2.3 million eggs daily, and it contains about 3 million egg-laying hens. It is being urged that if you or anyone you know present these symptoms after ingested recalled eggs to contact your doctor and get treatment immediately. Eggs that started the outbreak were recalled in April due to possible contamination of bacteria.
Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella Braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
"We're disheartened by the additional reported illnesses in recent days and we apologize to anyone who may have been sickened or who has a family member or friend who may have taken ill because of any of our eggs", Gene Grabowski, a representative for Rose Acre Farms, told The Daily Meal.
Salmonella can cause serious and even deadly infections in children or elderly adults. The bacteria can also cause arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis on rare occasions. A list of the FDA recalled products can be found here.
