288,000 Eggs Recalled For Possible Salmonella Taint

The year of the rotten (or rather, infected) egg isn’t over yet. The Cal-Maine Foods company has announced a recall after learning that around 24,000 dozen eggs that it processed and repackaged had originally come from a facility that tested positive for salmonella.

Cal-Maine said they received the eggs from a supplier called Ohio Fresh, which is where the positive salmonella results popped up. The company then distributed the eggs to food wholesalers and retailers in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.

Luckily, there are no reports yet of customers being sickened by the purchased eggs.

Here are the names, UPC codes, Julian dates and sell-by dates for the recalled eggs:

Plant numbers and Julian dates can be found printed on the individual cartons. The Julian date follows the plant number, for example P1457-282.

Consumers who believe they may have purchased potentially affected shell eggs should not eat them but should return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund. Questions and concerns may also be directed to Cal-Maine’s corporate office at 1-866-276-6299 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CDT.
