Cal-Main Foods Inc. is recalling approximately 24,000 dozen eggs after one of its suppliers tested positive for Salmonella contamination.
Ohio Fresh Eggs, LLC. eggs have tested positive for Salmonella Enteritidis, threatening thousands of distributed eggs. Cal-Main Foods Inc. purchased 24,000 dozen unprocessed eggs from the supplier, then processed, re-packaged them and sold.
The recalled eggs were distributed in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.
Plant numbers and Julian dates can be found printed on the individual cartons. The Julian date follows the plant number, for example P1457-282, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
There has been no food poisoning illnesses reported from this recall.
As a North Charleston foodborne illness attorney, I’d like to remind people of the symptoms of Salmonella. The foodborne pathogen can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. It can also be fatal in people with weakened immune systems such as young or elderly people.
Consumers who bought the recalled eggs should return them to the store they purchased them from for a full refund.
