Recall Alert: Wright County Eggs Sold Under Many Brand Names

Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa, is voluntarily recalling some of its eggs out of concern they may be tainted with salmonella bacteria.

According to a CNN report, the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration traced the source of an uptick in salmonella infections and determined it was most likely eggs from Wright County Egg.  The company says it is working to determine how the shell eggs are being contaminated.

Wright County Egg packages shell egg products under the following brand names:

  • Lucerne
  • Albertson
  • Mountain Dairy
  • Ralph’s
  • Boomsma’s
  • Sunshine
  • Hillandale
  • Trafficanda
  • Farm Fresh
  • Shoreland
  • Lund
  • Dutch Farms
  • Kemps

The brands are distributed nationwide. The recall affects eggs packed in several different sized cartons, from a half-dozen to 18-eggs.

The Egg Safety Center says recalled eggs are in cartons with a three-digit code ranging from 136 to 225 and plant numbers P-1026, P-1413, and P-1946.  The numbers are on one end of the egg carton.

Consumers are encouraged to return the eggs in their original packaging  to where they were purchased for a full refund.

Salmonella bacteria can be found inside and outside of eggs that appear to be normal.  For more information from the CDC on ways to reduce the risk of Salmonella poisoning from eggs click here.
