The Food and Drug Administration's egg recall has expanded to 550 million eggs. The initial recall only included 228 million eggs from three Wright County egg farms in Iowa. However, the recall expanded after epidemiologic investigators found that the two other Wright County farms and Hillandale Farms also contained salmonella bacteria.
The recalled eggs were distributed to stores on May 16th. Since May, there have been 1,200 reported cases of salmonella food poisoning in connection with the recalled eggs. The majority of cases of food poisoning are clustered in Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin.
