Egg recall potential salmonella contamination. Wright County has issued a nationwide recall on egg cartons with salmonella. The recall is for egg products from May 16 through August 13.

The nationwide recall was voluntarily initiated by Wright County Eggs, based in Galt, Iowa. The company says the suspect eggs come in packages stamped with one of these three plant numbers: P1026, P1413 and P1946. The way to tell if your eggs are part of the recall is to check the end of your egg carton.

If the egg cartons are stamped with one of those three numbers (the P stands for plant), then look carefully at the number that follows. If it falls anywhere between 136 to 225 (the 136th day of the year fell on May 16; day 225 was Aug. 13), take the eggs and the carton back to the store where you bought it. The store will issue a full refund.

Salmonella contaminated eggs come in various sizes of packaging: from 6-egg to 18-egg cartons. They're marketed under these brands: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms, and Kemps. The recall only concerns shell eggs. Other Wright County Eggs products aren't affected.
