The salmonella outbreak has been linked to eggs distributed by Rose Acre Farms, a family-owned company based in IN that claims itself to be the second-largest egg producer in the United States.

Since the initial outbreak announcement on April 16, public health officials have reported a dozen more cases of Salmonella infection to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Eleven people were hospitalized and there were no fatalities.

A report from Food Safety News provided more information on the confirmed salmonella cases, noting that the people sickened by the tainted eggs ranged from 1 to 90 years old, with a median age of 65.

The egg recall is the largest in the US since 2010, the CDC said.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an update Thursday on the salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of about 200 million eggs produced by an IN farm.

On Wednesday night, the Detroit Free Press reported that Patricia issued a statement , saying he was falsely accused in 1996. Wood, owner Martha Ford and general manager Bob Quinn released a joint statement giving full support to Patricia .

In grocery stores, the eggs were sold under the following brands: Country Daybreak; Crystal Farms; Coburn Farms; Sunshine Farms; Glenview; Great Value (Walmart's store brand), and Food Lion's store brand. These eggs were sold under multiple brand names at numerous retailers, both in the US and overseas.

Rose Acre Farms announced the voluntary recall of 206,749,248 eggs that were sold under several brands and distributed to retail stories and restaurants.

The FDA urges consumers to throw out or return eggs they suspect were affected by the recall and to wash all eggs before cooking with them.

Egg cartons with the following numbers were impacted: P-1065 (the plant number) and numbers between 011 and 102.

The Washington Post reported that this is not the first time Rose Acres Farms has been linked to a major salmonella outbreak. Out of the 25 sickened individuals who provided complete details, 22 people, or 88 percent, said that they fell ill after eating shell eggs. In 1990, the egg producer was linked to three separate salmonella outbreaks that sickened hundreds of people, the paper reported.
