Eggs Recalled for Possible Salmonella Contamination
Reader Cheryl emailed us about a wide egg recall we thought was important to pass on because the brand names affected are carried by many local stores.
Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa is voluntarily recalling specific shell eggs produced by their farms because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
Eggs affected by this recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers and foodservice companies in California, Illinois, Missouri, Colorado, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. These companies distribute nationwide.
Eggs are packaged under the following brand names: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps. Eggs are packed in varying sizes of cartons (6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons, 18-egg cartons) with Julian dates ranging from 136 to 225 and plant numbers 1026, 1413 and 1946. Dates and codes can be found stamped on the end of the egg carton. The plant number begins with the letter P and then the number. The Julian date follows the plant number, for example: P-1946 223.
If you find that you have purchased any of the recalled eggs, take them back to the store for a full refund.
