More than 206 million eggs recalled

In the largest US egg recall since 2010, nearly 207 million eggs have been recalled in the US. The FDA initiated the recall after more than 20 people were diagnosed with Salmonella braenderup infections linked to eggs from Rose Acre Farms.

Family-owned Rose Acre Farms has 17 facilities in eight states and produces 2.3 million eggs a day from 3 million hens.

Salmonella braenderup is not a very common food pathogen, which made it simpler for investigators to establish the source of the infection.

Following the 2010 egg incident when more than 500 million eggs were recalled, the father and son who owned the farms involved were fined $7 million and sentenced to three months’ imprisonment.
