206 million eggs recalled by IN farm

"My hope and expectation is that the egg manufacturers are being very aggressive - they're recalling everything that they have even the slightest suspicion about", said Snyder.

Rose Acre Farms is recalling 206,749,248 eggs that may have been contaminated after illnesses were reported on the East Coast, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website.

The recall came about after the illnesses were reported and the FDA inspected the North Carolina farm.

The eggs were distributed from Rose Acre Farms in Hyde County and shipped to North Carolina, Florida, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. They were sold under multiple brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms and Sunshine Farms.

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.

According to the release, salmonella is generally contracted from contaminated poultry, meat, eggs and water.

Salmonella causes serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

Chickens can pass the bacteria to eggs because the eggs leave hens through the same passageway as feces.

Symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhoea and abdominal pain.
