On April 13, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) published a press release announcing an egg recall. Rose Acre Farms has voluntarily recalled over 200 million eggs over concerns of Salmonella bacteria — and according to the press release, those potentially contaminated eggs had reached nine states, including Pennsylvania.

The FDA traced the outbreak — which has been connected to 22 Salmonella bacteria infections — back to Rose Acre Farms’ Hyde County farm, which has three million hens producing 2.3 million eggs every day. Those eggs are sold under multiple brand names, and some had been sold to restaurants.

But before you toss your egg cartons, check to see if your eggs were included in the recall. Those brands include: Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Crystal Farms, Coburn Farms, Sunshine Farms, Glenview, and Great Value. For the full list of eggs recalled — including the carton numbers you can check against the ones in your fridge — head to the FDA’s website.
