- A Salmonella outbreak caused by contaminated eggs has made at least 35 people in nine states sick, worrying food safety experts and average grocery store customers alike as authorities scramble to implement a large recall for more than 207 million eggs.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an update Thursday on the salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of about 200 million eggs produced by an IN farm.

Illnesses were reported in nine different states - Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

In 2010, a salmonella outbreak sickened hundreds and led to the recall of half a billion eggs.

"Illnesses that occurred after March 23, 2018, might not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill with Salmonella and when the illness is reported". The outbreak spread to almost 40 states and sickened 132 people.

A dozen people were added in a May 10 update by the CDC, upping the tally of those infected with Salmonella Braenderup linked to the recall.

In April, the Food and Drug Administration ordered a mandatory recall of kratom products manufactured by Las Vegas-based Triangle Pharmanaturals after investigators found that numerous products contained salmonella. Authorities said the DeCosters' company, Quality Egg, sold eggs contaminated with Salmonella enteriditis to several states and bribed an inspector for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in an attempt to sell eggs that were "red tagged" for failing to meet minimum industry standards.

The CDC announced last week that it "continues to recommend consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm". The possibly tainted eggs were distributed from the farm between January 11 and April 12. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Salmonella causes serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. The bacteria can also pass through chicken feces getting on the eggs. A list of the FDA recalled products can be found here.
