12 more people sickened by contaminated eggs from North Carolina farm


Twelve more people from five states have been affected by the salmonella outbreak linked to the recall of millions of eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms’ Hyde County farm.

Last month, more than 200 million eggs from the North Carolina farm were recalled because of bacterial contamination.

The eggs were shipped to restaurants and grocery stores in nine states.

Salmonella can cause nausea, diarrhea and, in rare cases, death.

As of April 16, 35 people from nine states had been sickened by the bacteria.

Consumers, restaurants and retailers are still advised not to eat, serve or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms’ Hyde County farm. 

The eggs were sold under multiple brands, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms and Sunups.

Egg cartons with the following numbers were impacted: P-1065 (the plant number) and numbers between 011 and 102.

For Publix and Sunups egg cartons: Plant number P-1359D, with numbers 048A or 049A and best by dates of April 2 and 3.
