Eggs Being Produced by Recall Farms Safe, if Pasteurized, Experts Say
Date:8/26/2010

cials said they had received nearly 2,000 reports of salmonella infections in people in about 22 states, a number they predicted would continue to grow in the coming weeks.

The actual number of people infected may be considerably higher, since not everyone who gets ill with salmonella seeks medical attention, officials said. Some estimates put the actual number of those sickened at 30 to 38 times the number reported, said Dr. Christopher R. Braden, acting director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Foodborne, Waterborne and Environmental Diseases.

Potential sources of salmonella contamination can include rodents, shipments of contaminated chicks or tainted feed, Hamburg said.

On Saturday, it was reported that both Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms share suppliers of chickens and chicken feed.

In healthy people, salmonella can cause fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea and usually lasts four to seven days. However, contamination can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

The FDA advises consumers to:

  • Toss recalled eggs or return them to the store for a refund.
  • See a doctor if you think you are ill after eating recalled eggs.
  • Keep eggs refrigerated at all times.
  • Throw out cracked or dirty eggs.
  • Wash hands, utensils and preparation surfaces with soap and water after contact with raw eggs.
  • Cook eggs until both the white and the yolk are firm and eat promptly after cooking.

Harmful bacteria such as salmonella are the most common cause of foodborne illnesses, according to federal health officials.
