Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana, is recalling 206,749,248 shell eggs because they may be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup. There are reports that twenty-two people have been sickened with this type of bacteria.

The FDA recall notice states that “The voluntary recall was a result of some illnesses reported on the U.S. East Coast, which led to extensive interviews and eventually a thorough FDA inspection of the Hyde County farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day. The facility includes 3 million laying hens with a USDA inspector on-site daily.”

You can see the long list of recalled products, along with the package sizes and the carton UPC numbers, at the FDA web site. The products include the brands of Country Daybreak, Food Lion eggs, Loose USDA, Nelms A Jumbo, Waffle House Loose, Crystal Farms, Coburn Farms, Sunshine Farms, Glenview, and Great Value. The eggs were sold in packages and loose.

The eggs, from plant number P-1065, have the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102 printed on either the side portion or the principle side of the carton or package. It looks like: Lot Codes 011 – 102. The eggs were distributed from the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina and were sold in these states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery.

If you have purchased any of these eggs, do not use them, even if you plan to cook with them. If they are contaminated, they can cross-contaminate your refrigerator, other foods in the fridge, countertops, utensils, and other surfaces in the kitchen. Throw them away in a double wrapped package or sealed bag, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Through an abundance of caution Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana is voluntarily recalling 206,749,248 eggs because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals infected with SalmonellaBraenderup  can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella  Braenderup can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Egg farm responsible for salmonella outbreak had ‘unacceptable rodent activity,’ FDA report says

A North Carolina egg farm that authorities say is responsible for an outbreak of salmonella illness that has sickened several people in nine states has had a heavy rodent infestation and failed to take actions to reverse it, according to an inspection report. Dozens of rodents, some alive and some dead, were found inside Rose Acre Farms’ hen houses in its North Carolina facility. Many, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration report says, were burrowing in manure piles. Insects also hovered around chicken feeds and throughout the farm. Employees were seen touching body parts and dirty surfaces while handling food. Perhaps more disturbing, the report says, is that “unacceptable rodent activity” had been going on at the facility for months — before the first of the salmonella-related illnesses occurred — but the facility’s management did not take appropriate actions, and unsanitary practices continued.
