Breakfast Spoiler: 200 million eggs recalled over salmonella contamination

Over 200 million eggs have been recalled in the United States for fears of a possible outbreak of salmonella.

The agency learned about a cluster of salmonella outbreaks in multiple states last month, and investigators worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state authorities to trace the source of the illness, the F.D.A. said.

Rose Acre Farms in Seymor, Indiana, was recalling the eggs voluntarily because of a possible contamination with the bacteria.

The recall is equivalent to nearly 10 days production at the farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day.

Gareth Bale and Zinedine Zidane's relationship have hit an all-time low but is expected to remain at the Bernabeu next season. If that is the case, though, it will likely involve a sale to a club outside the Premier League.

The recall was issued through an "abundance of caution" due to reported illnesses in the East Coast. They were sold under the Waffle House, Food Lion, Country Day Break, Great Value, Crystal Farms, Sunshine Farms, Coburn Farms and Glenview USDA brands. It is generally contracted from contaminated poultry, meat, eggs and water, and affects the intestinal tract.

The eggs - also distributed to Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina and West Virginia - have caused at least 22 people to fall ill as of Friday, the FDA said. The symptoms include fever, nausea, abdominal pain, etc.

The eggs that are part of the recall can be identified by the plant number, P-1065, with the Julian date range of 011 through 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package.

A full list of affected eggs is listed on the FDA's food recall website. The FDA has since inspected the farm.
