200 Million Eggs Recalled Over Salmonella Fears

More than 200 million eggs have been recalled in the United States after 22 people contracted salmonella.

The eggs were distributed in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Although they were all produced by a facility owned by Rose Acre Farms, they have been distributed under dozens of different names. Consumers can find all the names inside the U.S. Food and Drug Administration alert.

The affected eggs have a plant number P-1065 with the Julian date range of 011 through 102 printed on the side or front of the carton.

Salmonella affects more than a million people in the United States every year, causing diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps as soon as 12 hours after infection.

Around 450 people are killed by salmonella in the country every year.
