As per the inputs from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, Salmonella is the sole cause of about 1.2 million illness within the frontiers of the United States alone.
The outbreak has been traced to a single facility in Hyde County, North Carolina, belonging to Indiana-based egg producer Rose Acre Farms.
They are sold under brand names such as Great Value, Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms and Crystal Farms. Eight cases of the illness were reported in NY, 8 cases in Virginia, 5 cases in North Carolina, 6 cases in Pennsylvania, 3 cases in SC and one case in Colorado, West Virginia, and New Jersey, according to the CDC. No one has died from this particular outbreak, though 11 people have been hospitalized.
People who might have purchased the eggs are asked not to consume them and return them to the store for a refund. The company said in a statement that it has "not only corrected deficiencies at the farm" but "also taken steps to ensure the farm meets or exceeds the standards of the FDA and USDA".
