More than 200 million eggs from a North Carolina farm have been recalled from nine states after the Food and Drug Administration linked them to a salmonella outbreak, according to the New York Times and the FDA.
The FDA said the recall affects eggs from a farm in Hyde County, N. C., owned by the Seymour, Indiana,-based Rose Acre Farms.
The eggs, which are sold under a variety of brand names and were also sold to restaurants, were available for purchase in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, the New York Times reported.
The brand names include Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms and Sunshine Farms, according to the FDA.

“Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection,” the FDA reports. Children are the most at-risk. The elderly and those with weakened immune systems should also be wary, the FDA reports.
