A massive egg recall is reminding consumers that even after this summer’s Salmonella outbreak from eggs, the threat is still prominent.
Ohio Fresh Eggs, LLC. eggs have tested positive for Salmonella Enteritidis, threatening thousands of distributed eggs. Ohio Fresh supplies eggs to Cal-Main Foods Inc., which purchased 24,000 dozen unprocessed eggs that were processed and re-packaged and sold.
The recalled eggs were distributed in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The following packages were included in this recall.

Plant numbers and Julian dates can be found printed on the individual cartons. The Julian date follows the plant number, for example P1457-282.
There has been no food poisoning illnesses reported from this recall, but as a Seattle foodborne illness attorney, I’d like to remind people of the symptoms of Salmonella. The foodborne pathogen can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. It can also be fatal in people with weakened immune systems such as young or elderly people.
Consumers with the recalled eggs should return them to the store they purchased them from for a full refund.
