A salmonella outbreak has spurred a massive egg recall that has been expanded to affect several stores in California that carry the eggs produced by Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa, according to LA Now.The company is "one of the largest egg producers in the country," and is now having to recall "at least 228 million eggs." Many of those eggs were packaged under 13 different brand names, "including the store brands of Albertsons, Ralphs and Safeway's Lucerne Foods," found in local grocery stores.
Approximately 266 cases of salmonella have been reported so far in California that can be tied to the eggs.
"Consumers should return the eggs in the original carton to the store where they were purchased for a full refund," explains the Egg Safety Center in a statement about the Wright County egg recall. They include information about how to check the codes and dates on your cartons to see if you have affected product in your home.
