They were also sold to restaurants.

The CDC reports that 35 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup have been reported from 9 states: Colorado (1), Florida (2), New Jersey (1), NY (8), North Carolina (5), Pennsylvania (6), SC (3), Virginia (8), and West Virginia (1).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has linked the outbreak to eggs from Rose Acre Farms and its production facility in Hyde County, North Carolina, which led to a voluntary recall of 206 million eggs. 11 people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported. The egg business is so interconnected that in mid-April, Cal-Maine was forced to issue its own recall for 280,800 eggs because they'd been "purchased from Rose Acre Farms and re-packaged" as Cal-Maine's.

He also called on the two countries' businesspeople to invest in Armenia. Sargsyan was elected as prime minister on April 17.

"Illnesses that occurred after March 23, 2018, might not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill with Salmonella and when the illness is reported". At the time, the producer added that the move was done in "an abundance of caution" after discovering some sort of contamination at its facility in Hyde County, North Carolina, but this is nevertheless the country's largest egg recall in almost a decade. The affected Rose Acre Farms recalled eggs are identified with plant number P-1065 and Julian date ranges of 011 through date of 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package.

The CDC is continuing to urge consumers, restaurants and retailers not to eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' farm in Hyde County, North Carolina. The last one was in 1990, 28 years ago, that sickened 450 people - and that's two more salmonella outbreaks than your average egg producer has had.

If you have these eggs in your house, you should thrown them away and sanitize the shelf in your refrigerator where they were sitting.
