Consumers who have purchased shells eggs are urged to immediately stop using and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.

In a release on social media on Thursday, Triple T Specialty Meats states via WeRFoodSafety, that after investigation and extensive testing by the State of Iowa, USDA and FDA inspection teams, no salmonella was found at the Ackley facility.

There are fears the eggs are contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, which FDA defines as, "an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems".

The FDA says 22 illnesses have been reported so far. The eggs were sold through retail stores and to restaurants via direct delivery.

The affected eggs are from plant number P-1065.

Chickens can pass the bacteria to eggs because the eggs leave hens through the same passageway as feces.

The recall is the largest in the United States since 2010, according to Food Safety News. In healthy individuals, the organism can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

About 207 million eggs supplied by a North Carolina farm are being recalled after more than 20 consumers became ill from suspected salmonella poisoning.

Avoid consuming raw or undercooked eggs.

Always wash your hands after handling egg products. If you don't know where your carton came from, get rid of it.
