Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Eggs is Over: CDC

A multistate salmonella outbreak linked with Rose Acre Farms eggs appears to over, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Illnesses started between Nov. 16, 2017 and May 13, 2018. As of June 14, 45 people in 10 states had been reported ill. Eleven patients were hospitalized. No deaths were reported.

People with recalled Rose Acre Farms eggs should throw them out or return them to the store for a refund. Wash and sanitize refrigerator drawers or shelves where the recalled eggs were stored, the CDC advised.

In order to prevent illness from raw eggs, always handle and cook them safely. Cook eggs until both the yolk and white are firm.

Symptoms of salmonella illness such as diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps appear 12 to 72 hours after swallowing the germ. Most people recover within a week, but some cases last longer and are more severe, the CDC said.
