206 million eggs recalled for possible salmonella contamination

Rose Acre Farms recalls eggs due to possible health risks

The FDA said 22 illnesses had been reported. Consumers are advised not to eat the recalled eggs.

The farm distributed the eggs to retailers and restaurants in Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, and Virginia.

On the packaging of the recalled eggs, consumers can find the plant No. P-1065 and a Julian date range of 011 through date of 102.

According to Mayo Clinic, the possible signs and symptoms of salmonella infection include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, abdominal cramps, blood in the stool and headaches. The illness is known as salmonellosis. The illness can last 4 to 7 days. "They cost more, but are a better product in every way, including taste and-because they come from small flocks that get to spend time outdoors-are safer as well". Severe cases may require hospitalization. The elderly and those with weakened immune systems should also be wary, the FDA reports.

The witness noted they "were canoodling and being affectionate as she sat on his lap" claiming "they are 100% back together". They walked around the fields together in hugs and later Jeffries was seen resting her head on The Weeknd's shoulder.

A 2010 egg-related salmonella outbreak led to more than 550 million getting pulled from shelves and thousands became sick. Of those, 23,000 cases are serious enough that the patient had to be hospitalized.

It's rare, but the type of bacteria linked to the recalled eggs could cause blood vessels infections, endocarditis (an infection of the inner lining of the heart), or arthritis.

It may seem that since the inside of an egg is protected by a shell that the whites and the yolk would be protected from salmonella, but contamination usually happens before the shell forms. More than half a million eggs were recalled from two Iowa egg farms owned by Quality Egg after a nationwide Salmonella outbreak had infected thousands of people. The eggs were also distributed to several restaurant chains.

Avoid consuming raw or undercooked eggs.
