Cal-Maine happens to be the nation’s largest distributor of eggs. Reportedly they have recalled huge number of eggs after evidence of salmonella could be spotted at an Ohio farm during a FDA inspection.
This recall infact is the second of its kind in 2010, if you remember the first of which is believed to have sickened 1,600 people due to eggs contaminated with Salmonella. CDC spokeswoman Lola Russell said that for every reported case of the foodborne illness, there have been more than 30 unreported cases of the infection taking place. Well its a known fact that, Salmonella poses a heightened risk to elderly people, the very young and people who suffer from a compromised immune system. The good news for now is that no cases of the illness as yet have been linked to the latest outbreak.
