    ***EGG RECALL***many states

    http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm223139.htm

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - August 18, 2010 - The following statement was released by officials of Wright County Egg regarding the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) investigation of potential incidence of Salmonella enteritidis (SE).

    Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa is expanding its voluntary recall (original recall date: August 13, 2010) of specific Julian dates of shell eggs produced by their farms because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis or arthritis.

    Eggs affected by the expanded recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers and foodservice companies in California, Arizona, Missouri, Minnesota, Texas, Georgia, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Nevada, Iowa, Illinois, Utah, Nebraska, Arkansas, Wisconsin and Oklahoma. These companies distribute nationwide.
    Eggs are packaged under the following brand names: Albertsons, Farm Fresh, James Farms, Glenview, Mountain Dairy, Ralphs, Boomsma, Lund, Kemps and Pacific Coast. Eggs are packed in varying sizes of cartons (6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons, 18-egg cartons, and loose eggs for institutional use and repackaging) with Julian dates ranging from 136 to 229 and plant numbers 1720 and 1942.

    Dates and codes can be found stamped on the end of the egg carton or printed on the case label. The plant number begins with the letter P and then the number. The Julian date follows the plant number, for example: P-1720 223.

    Prior Recall
    Eggs under the August 13, 2010 recall are packaged under the following brand names: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps. Eggs are packed in varying sizes of cartons (6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons, 18-egg cartons, and loose eggs for institutional use and repackaging) with Julian dates ranging from 136 to 225 and plant numbers 1026, 1413 and 1946.
    There have been confirmed Salmonella enteritidis illnesses relating to the shell eggs and traceback investigations are ongoing.

    Wright County Egg is fully cooperating with FDA’s investigation by undertaking this voluntary recall. Our primary concern is keeping Salmonella out of the food supply and away from consumers. As a precautionary measure, Wright County Egg also has decided to divert its existing inventory of shell eggs from the recalled plants to a breaker, where they will be pasteurized to kill any Salmonella bacteria present.

    Consumers who believe they may have purchased these shell eggs should not eat them but should return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund. This recall is of shell eggs only. Other egg products produced by Wright County Eggs are not affected. Consumers with questions should visit www.eggsafety.org9 or call Wright County’s toll-free information number (866-272-5582), which contains a message outlining recall instructions for consumers.

    We are undertaking this additional recall to further protect the safety of consumers - this voluntary measure is consistent with our commitment to egg safety, and it is our responsibility.

    I can't tell if my eggs are under recall. The eggs I purchased were from Texas (even though we live in HI)

    My middle daughter just went to the doctor. On Sunday night she had asked me if she could make brownies. I said yes. Since she is 15 I didn't moniter her, she has cooked them before.

    I came downstairs and noticed that they were finished baking and she was the only one eating them. She had used a bread pan and the middle was undercooked and gooey so the other's wouldn't eat it.

    She got sick starting Monday morning and was in bed with fever and vomiting for 3 days.

    The doc took her blood yesterday and she was well enough to attend school today.

    We thought it was just a stomach flu.

    I have Hickman's Family Farms 12 eggs Large
    Sell by: Aug 30 10
    P2000 198 PKG 2

    Can someone help me figure out if they are under the recall? Thank you very much.

    Yes, thank you! I will be taking a close look at mine when I return home.

    Hope your daughter feels better soon, Kat!

    A guy I work with is having some problems as well so I will share this information with him, too! Same type of symptoms.

    Kat, maybe you could call the dr. and alert him. He can prescribe the appropriate antibiotic, just in case.

    Bless her, hope she feels better real soon.

    Kat:

    I don't see that brand or that plant number (P2000) on either recall list.

    If you think your daughter could have gotten sick from these undercooked eggs I would tell her doctor about the eggs if you didn't when she saw him. The doctor can feed the info through channels to the CDC, county health dept, etc.

    BTW, the incubation period for salmonella is 8-72 hours, so it could have been something she ate a couple of days prior to the start of symptoms and not these particular eggs.

    Since I posted this thread the egg recall has gone from 380 million to 400 million and still rising. Please, don't take any chances, it's not worth it.

    They are packaged under the following brand names:

    Lucerne
    Albertsons
    Mountain Dairy
    Ralphs
    Boomsma's
    Sunshine
    Hillandale
    Trafficanda
    Farm Fresh
    Shoreland
    Lund
    Dutch Farms
    Kemps
    The eggs were sold in cartons of six, 12 and 18. Consumers who bought the brands should inspect the cartons for two stamps. One is a four-digit number of the egg-production plant that should be 1026, 1413 or1946. The second stamp, which should be next to the first stamp, is a three-digit number that ranges from 136 to 225. Hope that helps!!

    Michigan is not included in the egg recall, but I heard an interview this morning with someone from a local health department with tips on identifying Salmonella poisoning and how to avoid it. This helpful info from the CDC is on the WWJ-950 Detroit website.

    FYI, this is not the complete list, it is the list from 8/18. Unfortunately some news outlets did not update their old articles when more brands/plant codes were added. And others published only the new additions today and did not include a the list from the 18th in their new article.

    Here are the additional ones from today, per CNN:

    "The new recall covers eggs branded as Albertsons, Farm Fresh, James Farms, Glenview, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma, Lund, Kemps and Pacific Coast and are marked with a three-digit code ranging from 136 to 229 and plant numbers 1720 and 1942, the company said. In addition, NuCal Foods, which, on its website, calls itself the largest distributor of shell eggs in the western United States, announced Thursday it was 'voluntarily recalling specific ... dates of shell eggs produced by Wright County Egg and packaged by NuCal Foods because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.'"
