WASHINGTON (ABC7) — A farm is recalling more than 200 million eggs, including some distributed in Virginia, because of salmonella concerns, according to authorities.
The FDA put out a press release Friday saying that Rose Acre Farms in Indiana is voluntarily recalling 206,749,248 eggs due to a potential Salmonella Braenderup contamination in connection with at least 22 people to getting sick.
Salmonella Braenderup can cause "serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," according to the FDA. Side effects for others include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, officials say.
The potentially infected eggs were sent to stores in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
