Salmonella concerns continue over some Iowa-produced eggs in local markets

Stores posting notices, removing brand names, plant numbers of egg cartons at risk

State officials this week provided a list of stores and product numbers related to the distribution and recall of eggs from an Iowa farm that might have been infected with the salmonella bacteria.

A portion of eggs produced from May 16 to Aug. 17 by Wright County Egg have been recalled from stores in 16 states including California, where they were distributed within days of production, according to the California Department of Public Health.

Consumers are advised to return eggs packaged under the brand names of Albertsons, Farm Fresh, James Farms, Glenview, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma, Lund, Kemps Pacific Coast and Country Eggs. These brands would have packaged eggs with the plant numbers P-1720, P-1942, P-1946 and P-1026 and a 3-digit code ranging from 136 to 229.

Since May, a salmonella outbreak in several states has been linked to eggs or food containing eggs produced at Wright County Egg, according to California public health officials.

Symptoms of salmonella infection include fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea that may be bloody. Most infected people recover, though some may develop complications that require hospitalization.

If people bought cage free eggs they would not risk these health problems and the chickens would have a good life. How would you like to be kept in unsanitary conditions in a brightly lit space too small to even turn around in? Think about what you eat and how it was grown!

I agree also! Saw Food Inc. and it changed the way we eat for the better. No more hormones in our food.
