Salmonella Outbreak Prompts Egg Recall

Monday, August 30, 2010By Richard Alexander
Since May of this year hundreds of cases of salmonella have been reported and  appears to be ongoing according to experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The outbreak has been tracked to in-shell eggs from Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa.  A recall has been launched. Currently there are an estimated 228 million eggs being recall according to the associated press.

The recall was launched Aug. 13. The following is a list of brands being recalled:

  • Lucerne
  • Albertson
  • Mountain Dairy
  • Ralph’s
  • Boomsma’s
  • Sunshine
  • Hillandale
  • Trafficanda
  • Farm Fresh
  • Shoreland
  • Lund
  • Dutch Farms
  • Kemps

The recall covers eggs in their shells packed between May 16 and Aug. 13. They come in cartons ranging from six to 18 eggs and are marked with plant numbers P-1026, P-1413 and P-1946. The eggs should be returned for a refund and not consumed.

The type of salmonella causing the outbreak, salmonella enteritidis, is the most common form. Thorough cooking reduces the amount of Salmonella in the eggs.  Public health research shows, each case of laboratory-confirmed salmonella usually represents 30 cases that were not reported. So the number of people sickened in this outbreak could be in the thousands. Salmonella can cause fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea and usually lasts four to seven days.
