This is the latest update on today's egg recall. The list of egg distributos is growing, and the recall could involve 380 million eggs. The Wright County Egg company, based in Iowa, has provided a full list of distributors.
Recalled products in question were sold to contract companies including Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms, Bayview, Nulaid, Sun Valley and Kemp.
In addition to those brands, NuCal Foods in California issued another notice, saying it was also recalling several brands it had packaged from Wright County Egg. The recall could involve as many as 380 million eggs. The FDA posted Wright's voluntary recall notice, noting that common salmonella symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
"Eggs affected by this recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers and food service companies in California, Illinois, Missouri, Colorado, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. These companies distribute nationwide," the FDA said in a statement. "Eggs are packed in varying sizes of cartons (6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons, 18-egg cartons) with Julian dates ranging from 136 to 225 and plant numbers 1026, 1413 and 1946. Dates and codes can be found stamped on the end of the egg carton. The plant number begins with the letter P and then the number. The Julian date follows the plant number, for example: P-1946 223."
