The recall affects numerous brands of eggs, including Ralph’s, Albertson, Farm Fresh, Dutch Farms, Kemps, Lund, Shoreland, Trafficanda, Lucerne, Hillandale, Sunshine, Boomsma’s, and Mountain Dairy.

Hundreds of cases of salmonella poisoning have already been confirmed. California alone has reported at least 266 people incidents of salmonella related illness. People infected with the salmonella bacteria can experience bouts of diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and cramping, with the symptoms lasting as long as a week. The effects of salmonella poisoning can be extremely dangerous, sometimes requiring hospitalization for severe dehydration. Worse, if a salmonella infection spreads in to the blood stream, without treatment, death can occur.
