Today, the Food and Drug Administration announced the expansion of an egg recall issued on August 13th, to include 360 million eggs distributed across the country.
The initial recall included 228 million eggs from three Wright County egg farms in Iowa. Now, after further epidemiologic investigation, officials have expanded the recall to include all five Wright County egg farms.
The recall comes after complaints from consumers that they have suffered from salmonella food poisoning. Salmonella is a bacteria that can get into a person's gastrointestinal tract and cause food poisoning. The majority of complaints of food poisoning are clustered in Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.
