35 confirmed cases of salmonella reported stemming from Hyde. Co. egg recall

The outbreak is linked to eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms in Indiana.

Thirty-five people - up by 12 over the past few weeks - have been sickened by Salmonella braenderup, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said this week. Eleven people have been hospitalized for complications related to the infections, the CDC said, but no deaths have been reported.

People in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Colorado were also affected. These numbers come after 200 million eggs that were farmed in North Carolina were recalled.

Rose Acre Farms announced the voluntary recall of 206,749,248 eggs that were sold under several brands and distributed to retail stories and restaurants. The recalled eggs were sold under brand names such as Great Value, Country Daybreak and Crystal Farms. For Publix and Sunups egg cartons, people should check their cartoons for plant number P-1359D and Julian date 048A or 049A with best By dates of April 2 and April 3.

"We're disheartened by the additional reported illnesses in recent days and we apologize to anyone who may have been sickened or who has a family member or friend who may have taken ill because of any of our eggs", Gene Grabowski, a representative for Rose Acre Farms, told The Daily Meal.

As of April 16, 35 people from nine states had been sickened by the bacteria.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can be found on the inside of contaminated eggs and on eggshells, too. "Rose Acre Farms takes food safety and the welfare of our hens, workers, and consumers very seriously". The outbreak spread to almost 40 states and sickened 132 people.

Symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain. "It's very hard to know that so they have to do a large recall".

In February, Triple T Specialty Meats, based in Ackley, Iowa, recalled more than 20,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken salad products that may have been contaminated with salmonella. Sixteen people reported eating various egg dishes at different restaurants, according to the CDC.
