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.
Incidents/Injuries: Minnesota health officials say seven salmonella cases in two restaurant outbreaks were linked to Wright County Egg in May and July.
Description: Thirteen brands have been recalled: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, 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.
