On April 13, Rose Acre Farms recalled over 206 million eggs that were sold in many states under different brand names. For full information, go to the FDA’s Recalls website.

Consumers, restaurants and retailers should not eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms’ Hyde County farm. Throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund, the CDC said.

It also recommended washing and sanitizing refrigerator shelves or drawers where the recalled eggs were stored.

All eggs need to be handled and cooked safely to prevent illness. Eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and white are firm, and scrambled eggs should not be runny, the CDC said.
