The eggs that are part of the recall can be identified by the plant number, P-1065.

Check your eggs as more than 200 million are being recalled because of potential contamination of salmonella.

According to the FDA, 22 illnesses have been reported in connection with the eggs to date.

The eggs have been sold in various stores, including Food Lion and Walmart.

Rose Acre Farms, of Seymour, Indiana, issued a voluntary recall for 206,749,248 eggs distributed to restaurants and retail stores in the following states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

According to the FDA, the eggs were distributed from the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina, and reached consumers in the following states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery.



The eggs that are part of the recall can be identified by the plant number, P-1065, with the Julian date range of 011 through 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package. The FDA, urges you to stop using the recalled eggs right away and return them to the store you bought them from for a full refund.

According to the FDA, the recalled eggs may be contaminated with salmonella braenderup, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Since the recall, Wal-Mart released a statement in regards to the bad eggs:

Walmart is committed to providing our customers with safe, high-quality products at our every day low prices. As soon as we were notified by Rose Acre Farms of the recall, we immediately began the process of alerting our stores to remove the affected product from our store shelves and inventory. We have also instituted a register block to prevent the sale of these specific items.

If customers have questions regarding the recall, they should call 1.800.WALMART.


Wal-Mart advises consumers check the lot code, which helps narrow down the eggs arrived and who they came from.

The UPC code will tell you that some portion of that item has been recalled, but a matching UPC code doesn't mean your eggs are recalled.

Reminder, if you have a matching UPC code AND a lot code from 011-102, then your eggs are no good.
