Another egg recall

A second big Iowa producer is recalling what could turn out to be millions of eggs because of concerns about salmonella contamination. The eggs were sold under the brand names Hillandale Farms, Sunny Farms and Sunny Meadow, and were distributed in California and 13 other states. From the LAT:

Though the producer did not disclose how many eggs it was recalling, the firm did say that the eggs were produced and packaged as early as April 10 to as recently as Thursday. Considering the lengthy production time frame, the number of eggs being recalled potentially could be in the millions. The eggs were packaged in six-, dozen-, 18- and 30-egg cartons, and in five-dozen cases, the company said. Other eggs were packaged under the Wholesome Farms and West Creek brands in 15 and 30-dozen tray packs.

The other egg recall this week may be linked to 1,000 or more salmonella infection cases nationwide.
