Gravel Ridge Farms is recalling its Cage Free Large Eggs after more than a dozen people fell ill from eating the salmonella-tainted eggs.
Here’s the latest recall over eggs with salmonella
Fourteen people have been sickened and two of them hospitalized after eating eggs from the Alabama-based company. The eggs were sold at more than two dozen stores, restaurants and farmer’s markets throughout parts of Georgia, Florida and Tennessee.
You can see a complete list of the known locations where the eggs were sold on the FDA’s website.
Here’s the identifying info to look for on the carton:
If you have these eggs at home, throw them away immediately or take them to the store for a refund.
Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause symptoms such as fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, and may even be fatal in young children, frail or elderly people.
In rare cases, Salmonella can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis if it gets into the bloodstream.
Unfortunately, this is second time in recent months that a recall was prompted by salmonella-tainted eggs. In April, more than two million eggs sold at Walmart, Food Lion, Waffle House and elsewhere were recalled because of the likely presence of the potentially deadly bacteria.
