Indiana farm recalls over 200 million eggs due to risks of salmonella

More than 500 eggs from two Iowa farms owned and controlled by Austin J. DeCoster were recalled that year.

Federal officials in the United States say almost 207 million eggs have been recalled because of fears that they may have been contaminated with salmonella, a type of bacteria that causes serious illnesses and deaths, particularly among children and elderly people. They reached consumers in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

The recall was issued after 22 cases of salmonella illnesses were reported last month.

FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb tweeted that the eggs had been sold in nine states "under multiple brand names"-including Great Value, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Crystal Farms, and Sunshine Farms-and warned consumers not to eat the eggs if they come across them".

Those who purchased the potentially affected eggs are advised by the agency to return them to the point of objective for a full refund.

There's a massive recall of 200 million eggs over fears of salmonella.

The most effective ways to prevent infection with salmonella are keeping surfaces and hands clean and cooking foods properly.

Salmonella can be present in either the yolk or white of an egg.

In some cases, the egg shells can be contaminated with fecal matter, reports Live Science. The bacteria can infect the egg while still in a chicken's ovary, CNN noted, or while leaving the same passageway as the bird's feces.

According to Mayo Clinic, the possible signs and symptoms of salmonella infection include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, abdominal cramps, blood in the stool and headaches. They're most severe for infants, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. Those people should see a doctor if salmonella poisoning is suspected.

Russian Federation may be entrapping Trump: Ex-FBI chief Comey
Comey said he told Trump "to be careful about that because it might create a narrative that we're investigating you personally". Even if it did, however, Comey said he still thinks it was the right thing to do.

Salmonella infection usually happens due to the consumption of raw or undercooked meat, poultry, eggs, egg products, seafood or fruits, and vegetables (if washed during processing with water contaminated with salmonella). Some were reportedly sold at Walmart and Food Lion stores. The taste and texture change during pasteurization so not everyone wants to use pasteurized eggs.

Throw away dirty or cracked eggs.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service recommends that egg dishes be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit to kill any bacteria that may be present.
