FDA Investigates Multistate Outbreak of Salmonella Braenderup Linked to Shell Eggs from Rose Acre Farms- update
The FDA was able to trace back the source of some of the eggs to the Rose Acre Farms’ Hyde County farm after learning that all of the people who became ill ate eggs or egg dishes. FDA analysis of the samples revealed that the same strain of Salmonella Braenderup that caused the illnesses was present at the Hyde County Egg facility, connecting the facility to the outbreak. These eggs are sold under multiple brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Sunshine Farms, Publix, and Sunups. Recalled eggs were also sold to restaurants. The CDC reports that 35 people infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup have been reported from 9 states: Colorado (1), Florida (2), New Jersey (1), New York (8), North Carolina (5), Pennsylvania (6), South Carolina (3), Virginia (8), and West Virginia (1). 11 people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported. @ https://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/Outbreaks/UCM604644.htm
