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.
