The week's recalls...
Hazard: A multistate outbreak of Salmonella,
traced back to eggs packaged at Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa.
More than half a billion eggs are affected by the recall, which was
expanded from an original recall of 220 million, though reports of
illness are still relatively few and scattered. Some 2,000 cases
were reported to the CDC from May 1 through July 31, not all of
which were necessarily tied to the eggs.

say seven salmonella cases in two restaurant outbreaks were linked
to Wright County Egg in May and July.

Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund,
Dutch Farms and Kemps. The eggs being recalled were packed between
May 16 and Aug 13.
What to do: If you have suspect eggs, check the
dates and codes stamped on the end of the carton. The plant numbers
affected are P-1026, P-1413, and P-1946. The dates range from 136
to 225. If you have suspicious eggs, return them to the store where
they were bought for a refund.
