According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 35 people were admitted to the hospital from the nine states where salmonella outbreak was encountered: Colorado, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Florida, North and SC.

Following Rose Acre Farms' recall, Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. voluntarily recalled eggs purchased from Rose Acre Farms and produced at the Hyde County facility.

The FDA is urging consumers to return or discard eggs from brands listed in the recall.

The CDC has released new information about a massive egg recall across several states.

A dozen more cases of salmonella traced to eggs have been reported since the CDC first announced the outbreak almost a month ago, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner.

More than 500 million eggs from two Iowa farms owned and controlled by Austin J. DeCoster were recalled that year.

Only an FA Cup final success can slightly atone for a auto crash season, but even that may be beyond toothless one-goal Chelsea . Premier League clubs will be handed a boost from next season regarding direct entry to the group stages of the Champions League.

Most people with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after infection.

The eggs were sold under the brand names Country Daybreak; Crystal Farms; Coburn Farms; Sunshine Farms; Publix; Sunups; Glenview; Great Value; as well as at Walmart and Food Lion stores. Customers are encouraged to check for a plant number of P-1065 on the cartons, or a plant number of P-1359D for the Publix and Sunups eggs. They also noted employees touching dirty floors, equipment and their bodies without washing their hands. The company said in a statement that it has "not only corrected deficiencies at the farm" but "also taken steps to ensure the farm meets or exceeds the standards of the FDA and USDA".

So far, there's one reported case in New Jersey.

Elderly people and young children are the ones who stand at a higher risk of contracting the bacteria due to eating undercooked eggs.

Around 64% people who have fallen sick said that they had eaten eggs at a restaurant, said the officials.
