13 Brands Of Eggs Recalled For Possible Salmonella Contamination

Hey, before you crack that egg into your morning hair-of-the-dog, you might want to take a look at the brand on the carton. An egg producer in Iowa has issued a massive recall that affects 13 brands of chicken eggs sold nationwide for fear they might be tainted with salmonella.

The brands of eggs included in the recall are:
Mountain Dairy
Farm Fresh
Dutch Farms

The recalled eggs are packed in varying sizes of cartons (6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons, 18-egg cartons). You can find out if your eggs are among those recalled by looking at the side of the package. The four-digit number following the “P” on the bottom line is the plant code. The affected eggs are from plant numbers are 1026, 1413 and 1946. Following the plant code is a 3-digit date code. The date codes for the recalled eggs range from 136 to 225. For example, the image at the top has the code P 1946 223, meaning those eggs have been recalled.

If you are the owner of recalled eggs, you should not eat them but should return them immediately to the store for a full refund.
