By

1 Minutes Read

An egg recall has been issued across Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia in light of salmonella concerns.

Atlanta’s Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) linked a recent outbreak to eggs from Gravel Ridge Farm in Cullman, Alabama.

The organization reports that 14 people have fallen ill from salmonella poisoning thus far.

Recall

The recall applies to eggs in dozen and 2.5 dozen cartons.

The UPC code on the cartons is 7-06970-38444-6, and they have ‘best by’ dates ranging from July 25 through October 3.

Salmonella

A bacterial infection, symptoms of salmonella enteritidis include nausea, fever, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, headache, chills, and blood in stool.

Symptoms usually develop within 72 hours of eating contaminated food.

The CDC estimates that 450 people die from enteritidis in the US annually.

Outbreaks

A similar egg recall was issued in Sydney, Australia this month, after 23 people contracted salmonella enteritidis infections.

In July, a 26-state recall was issued in the US after 40 hospitalizations resulted from salmonella contaminated turkey.
