Egg Recall Expands August 26: Full List of Recalled Eggs
The Egg Recall Due to a Salmonella Risk Has Expanded Once Again
Wright County Egg, which has already recalled 380 million of the total 550 million eggs recalled total, confirmed on Wednesday night that they were adding one more brand to their list. This comes after they had confirmed cases of Salmonella enteritidis in these eggs.
This recall is a voluntary recall of eggs under the brand Cardenas Market. They were distributed to Cardenas Market stores located in California and Nevada and had already ceased operations and distributions when the original Wright County egg recall was announced, despite not being included in the original recall list.
If you own some of these eggs, you can check the label for the affected plant number 1026 and Julian dates ranging from 136 to 228.
Dates and codes can be found printed on the label. The plant number begins with the letter P and then the number. The Julian date follows the plant number, for example: P-1026 228.
Trafficanda Egg Ranch-branded eggs also issued a voluntary recall on Thursday after they confirmed the presence of Salmonella enteritidis in their eggs dating from May 17 2010 to August 17 2010; this is also related to the Wright County egg recall.
These eggs were distributed in California with Juilan dates from 136 to 229 and plant numbers 1026, 1413, 1720, 1942 and 1946.
According to a spokeswoman for the Egg Safety Center, the two newest "subrecalls" don't add to the total number of eggs recalled; both the Cardenas Market and Trafficanda Egg Ranch eggs were counted already as part of Wright County Egg's 380 million.
Now that so many eggs have been added to the egg recall list, it can be difficult to keep track. CNN is keeping track of all the affected states, and the Egg Safety Center has released a list of all the affected brands, Plant ID, and Julian Dates of all the recalled eggs.
Make sure you check any eggs you have against this list.
