Although no illnesses have been reported yet, Cal-Maine Foods Inc. is recalling 288,000 eggs. Cal-Maine– the country’s biggest egg seller and distributor–accidentally purchased eggs from the supplier, Ohio Fresh Eggs, after tests conducted by the FDA showed salmonella at the Ohio farm. The Ohio Fresh eggs were distributed to wholesalers and retailers in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.
Ironically enough, the Ohio egg farm where the salmonella has been found, received financing from the owner of an Iowa egg farm that was behind the massive egg recall earlier this year. In case you need a refresher: Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms recalled 550 million eggs in August when the products were linked to 1,600 or so salmonella outbreaks.
