The eggs were produced by Rose Acre Farms, which has issued a voluntary recall of more than 200,000 eggs. 

The cases were reported in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. 

These eggs were sold under multiple brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms and Sunups.

The CDC advises you should:

  • Throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
  • Wash and sanitize drawers or shelves in refrigerators where recalled eggs were stored.
