Tainted Egg Recall Is Expanded

August 18, 2010: 06:38 PM EST
A recall of eggs in the Midwest and West by Iowa-based Wright County Egg because of hundreds of salmonella-induced illnesses has been expanded from 228 million eggs to 380 million. Affected states include Minnesota, California, Colorado, Arizona, Illinois, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin. The FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continue to work with state health departments to investigate the problem. It is believed the illnesses stem from eating undercooked or raw eggs used in salad dressings or pie fillings. The FDA has visited the Wright County Egg’s facilities to inspect barns and review records, the company acknowledged.
