Egg recall expanded....

You may have heard that there is a nation-wide recall on eggs.  Yesterday, the recall was expanded to include a total of 380 million eggs that have been sold since May by the Wright County Egg, of Galt, Iowa. 

Brand names that this company produces include the following:  Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms, Kemps, James Farms, Glenview and Pacific Coast. (Dutch Farms said Wright County packaged eggs under its brand without permission.).

This recall is in response to hundreds of people becoming ill with Salmonella.  

The outbreak, which federal officials said was the largest of its type related to eggs in years, began in May, just weeks before new government safety rules went into effect that were intended to greatly reduce the risk of salmonella in eggs.
