The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local officials, are investigating Salmonella Braenderup infections.
- The FDA is advising consumers not to eat recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms’ Hyde County farm. According to Rose Acre Farms’ recent recall notice, these eggs are sold under multiple brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, and Sunshine Farms. Recalled eggs were also sold to restaurants.
- FDA testing has determined that these eggs are connected to 22 cases of Salmonella Braenderup infections. CDC is confirming the release of information about these illnesses with state health departments..
- After learning that all of the people who became ill ate eggs or egg dishes, the FDA was able to trace back the source of some of the eggs to the Rose Acre Farms’ Hyde County farm. FDA investigators then inspected the farm and collected samples for testing. 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, tying the facility to the illnesses.
- As a result of these findings and discussions between the FDA and the firm, Rose Acre Farms has voluntarily recalled eggs from the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina. If anyone has the recalled eggs in their home, they should not eat them.
