Egg Recall

An egg recall has been issued for 228 million eggs that may have salmonella. This egg recall comes from Wright County Egg in Iowa that sells eggs to the following brands: Lucerne (Safeway), Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms, and Kemps.

Eggs are have plant numbers on the carton (I did not know this, either). The plant numbers that are subject to the egg recall are P-1026, P-1413, and P-1946. The dates for the recall (which are set in “Julian format,” something else I have never heard are) range from 136 to 225.

This is the CBS News report on the egg recall.

August 21, 2010 Update: This egg recall is far more serious than originally thought. Here are the details from CNN.
