Cal-Maine Foods is recalling 380,000 eggs due to Salmonella contamination

Another week, another product recall.

Cal-Maine Foods issued a recall on 280,000 of their eggs for possible salmonella contamination, according to a statement on the company's website.

Eggs shipped to eight states

The recall affects eggs sent to stores in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. The Cal-Maine Foods website also lists the brand names and expiration dates of the affected eggs.

What is Salmonella

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious or fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of Salmonella poisioning include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

No illness reported

The recall came after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found salmonella in some eggs at an Ohio farm that provides eggs for Cal-Main Foods. This recall comes after an August egg recall where 380 million eggs from Iowa farms were recalled when over 1,000 people were sickened.

Return information

Consumers who believe they may have purchased potentially affected shell eggs should not eat them but should return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund, according to the Cal-Foods statement. You can also direct any questions to their customer service hotline at 1-866-276-6299.
