Eggs in Georgia Recalled Over Salmonella Concerns

Check your eggs and double check at the supermarket.

Eggs have been recalled amid salmonella concerns and Georgia is among the states in which the affected eggs were sold. Alabama and Tennessee are also included in the recall.

Gravel Ridge Farms recalled cage-free large eggs because they could be contaminated. The company said it recalled packages containing one dozen and 2 1/2 dozen eggs in cardboard containers with UPC code 7-06970-38444-6.

Gravel Ridge Farms says customers who have affected eggs should not eat, sell, or serve the eggs. They should throw them away or return to a store for a refund.

No deaths have been reported.

From the FDA:

Salmonellais an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

On 9/6/2018 the firm was notified by FDA that the product they supplied may be contaminated with Salmonella.
