Egg recall includes four more brands

Food Borne Diseases Posted on

Minnesota is one of 10 states included in the latest egg recall, this time from Sparboe Farms, a Litchfield-based egg producer, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
In a news release issued Friday, Sparboe said it packaged eggs produced by two Iowa egg companies at the center of a salmonella outbreak, Wright County Eggs and Hillandale Farms. While Sparboe said it believes that any eggs that reached grocery stores have already been "removed and replaced," it still issued a voluntary recall of shell eggs produced by those Iowa companies.

Those large, white, shell eggs were distributed to grocery stores and food-service companies in 10 states, under the brand names Albertson, Sparboe Farms, Shamrock Foods and Glenview Farms.

Consumers should look for the code stamped on the side of the egg carton. The recall covers eggs with the plant number 1167, followed by the numbers 214, 215 or 219. Consumers should not eat those eggs, but throw them away or return them to the store for a full refund.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
