Egg recall is first of its kind in history, and several states have been affected.

Egg recall hits several states, only beginning. The current recall of eggs could only be the beginning for Wright County and it's distributors. More than 380 million eggs have been recalled.

It is a food recall of the century, as states such as California announce an egg recall. The current food recalls come after a group of high school students complained of stomach aches after eating custard-filled pastries. Sooner after, people in other states became ill with the same symptoms that also included diarrhea.

The number of salmonella outbreak cases is expected to grow and with 380 million eggs recalled, evidence about the cause of the outbreak is pointing toward the farm's owner, which has a history of public health violations. Federal officials also warned that the number of cases of people who fell sick because of these eggs will probably grow, being one of the largest food recalls of its kind in recent history.

These brands are affected:

- Albertson

- Farm Fresh
- Glenview
- Hillandale
- James Farms
- Kemps
- Lucerne
- Lund
- Mountain Dairy
- Pacific Coast
