WASHINGTON – An Iowa egg producer is recalling 228 million eggs after being linked to an outbreak of salmonella poisoning.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said eggs from Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa, were linked to several illnesses in Colorado, California and Minnesota. The CDC said about 200 cases of the strain of salmonella linked to the eggs were reported weekly during June and July, four times the normal number of such occurrences.

State health officials say tainted eggs have sickened at least 266 Californians and seven in Minnesota.

The eggs were distributed around the country and packaged under the names Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemp.

  • I know if you bought the eggs from Ralph's and used your club card, you would have received an automated cell phone message about these eggs- we did. My husband works in the industry and he did work on this issue this past weekend- Ralph's will take them back for full credit!

  • I only use eggs for baking, but this is sad. Just about every human consumption food has been recalled.

  • Well, we've eaten eggs out of our Hillandale carton and no one's sick. I don't worry too much about these things.
