The Egg recall of 2010 puts half a billion eggs in suspect of being part of the major salmonella outbreak. Â What started as a recall of only eggs from Wright County Farms in Galt, Iowa has turned into a recall that has added Hillandale Farms in Iowa as well.
Some of the states affected by the recall are Arkansas, California, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin.
To check your eggs, look for the production code which is found at the end of the carton. These start with P followed by a four digit plant code. Â Then, a three digit date code.Â Look for plant numbers 1026, 1091, 1292, 1413, 1663, 1686, 1686K, 1720, 1860, 1942, 1946, or 1951.Â Look for date codes between 099 and 230.
If your eggs are part of the recall, simply take them back to the store for a refund. Hey…it’s better than getting salmonella poisoning!
To avoid the risk of salmonella all together, purchase pasteurized eggs.
