A Salmonella disease outbreak has caused the recall of 13 brands of shelled eggs. The California Department of Public Safety has warned consumers not to eat Wright County (a company from Iowa) Eggs as these may be contaminated with the bacteria.

The company initiated and volunteered the recall of approximately 228 million eggs, which were packed between May 16 and August 13. Wright County Eggs issued the warning to consumers that egg packages with these three plant numbers, P1026, P1413 and P1946, must not be used and they should return the purchased packages where they were bought to avail a refund.

The supposed tainted eggs are offered in the market under different brand names and packing. The brands names are the following: Albertson, Lucerne, Ralph’s, Mountain Dairy, Sunshine, Trafficanda, Shoreland, Lund, Keoms, Boomsma’s and Dutch Farms, and they are available in packs of 6 and 8.

The contaminated eggs were reportedly transported to food service companies, wholesalers and distributors in eight states across the United States including, Nebraska, Minnesota, Missouri, Colorado, Wisconsin, Iowa and California, but those wholesalers, distributors and other companies dispersed the eggs in different places all over the country.

An investigation at the Iowa firm was already launched by The Federal Food and Drug Administration.
