Time to inspect your eggs! The nation's biggest egg seller and distributor, Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. is recalling 288,000 eggs "purchased from supplier Ohio Fresh Eggs after a routine test showed salmonella at the Ohio farm for eggs processed from Oct. 9 to Oct. 12," says ABC7. The eggs were distributed in eight states, including California. Back in August, an Iowa-based producer recalled 550 million of their tainted eggs, which "were linked to as many as 1,600 illnesses."
