More illnesses reported as salmonella outbreak traced to eggs grows

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has connected the salmonella outbreak to the Hyde County Farm, owned by the Rose Acre Farms in North Carolina. According to a report by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 35 people across nine states in the U.S. have been infected by the salmonella virus, and more are predicted to succumb in the near future. 11 of the 35 have needed hospitalization, and thankfully no fatalities have occurred. The eggs came from Rose Acre's Hyde County Farm in North Carolina.

The update also explains that more cases could be on the way. "This takes an average of two to four weeks", said the CDC statement.

In the month of March, the FDA had conducted an inspection at the Rose Acre Farms and found over a dozen eggs contaminated with salmonella. The recalled eggs were sold outside of Indiana. Salmonella is not typically life-threatening, but it can prove fatal in children or elderly adults, and it is known to kill many people in developing countries who don't have access to medical services.

"Look at the expiration dates on the egg cartons if you're actually buying them in a store and be very, very aware and be very careful about using eggs past that point", Dr. Rushton said.

The FDA has of course posted the full list of recalled products and warns that, if it turns out you still have one of the possibly unsafe cartons, you should chuck them in the trash or return them for a refund.
