Potential Salmonella Enteritidis Contamination Leads to Recall of 288,000 Cal-Maine Foods Eggs
After discovering that a routine sample test came back positive for salmonella, Cal-Maine Foods is recalling 288,000 eggs. The eggs were purchased from Ohio Fresh eggs and were distributed by Cal-Maine Foods to California, Arkansas, Kansas, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. No illnesses have been reported due to the possible salmonella enteritidis contamination. Eggs included in the recall were packaged under four brands: James Farm, Springfield Grocer, Sunny Meadow and Sun Valley. Consumers who have bought eggs under these brands are being cautioned to check for plant number 1457; packing “Julian” dates of 282, 284 or 285; and a “sell by” or “expiration date” of 11/07/10, 11/09/10 or 11/24/10. Anyone who has these egg products in their fridge is being advised to not consume them and to seek a full refund. New FDA rules monitoring egg safety have been in effect since July 9, which came too late for a huge salmonella outbreak that caused the recalls of 580 million eggs over the summer of 2010.

380 Million Eggs Recalled Due to Salmonella Outbreak
In what the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is referring to as one of the largest shell egg recalls in recent history, 380 million eggs have been recalled by Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa and the number of Salmonella enteritidis cases have nearly tripled. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that hundreds of Americans have most likely become ill from tainted eggs in recent months. 1,953 cases of salmonella were reported from May 1 to July 31 and even more cases are expected to be reported. New safety rules for large-scale egg production created by the FDA were introduced after the salmonella outbreak, which could have been prevented if the regulations had been implemented before July. Some common symptoms of salmonella poisoning to look out for include headache, fever, diarrhea, chills, vomiting, muscle pains, and abdominal cramps. While most salmonella infections can be treated and only last for four to seven days, the elderly, children, and those with weakened immune systems may be at risk of developing life-threatening conditions.
