The egg recall is the largest in the USA since 2010, the CDC said.

In April, Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Ind., voluntarily recalled 206,749,248 eggs because they could be contaminated with salmonella. The eggs were sold under various brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak and Crystal Farms.

The eggs went to stores and restaurants in New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

As of April 16, 35 people from nine states had been sickened by the bacteria.

According to the Post, Rose Acre Farms has come under scrutiny in the past for salmonella contamination. "We vow to do better in the future".

More than 500 million eggs from two Iowa farms owned and controlled by Austin J. DeCoster were recalled that year. It is generally contracted from contaminated poultry, meat, eggs and water, and affects the intestinal tract.

But although the two men arrived within minutes of each other, they did not meet that day and have never met, AT&T said this week. AT&T also said, "we didn't ask him to set up any meetings for us with anyone in the administration and he didn't offer to do so".

Salmonella braenderup is a bacteria that can be found in raw foods and causes symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever, usually about 12 to 72 hours after infection, though the illness can sometimes take weeks to develop.

The CDC's salmonella fact sheet states that the bacteria is responsible for about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths each year in the USA, with over 80 percent of the illnesses traced to tainted food.

In April, the Food and Drug Administration ordered a mandatory recall of kratom products manufactured by Las Vegas-based Triangle Pharmanaturals after investigators found that numerous products contained salmonella.

Kratom or Mitragyna speciosa, an unregulated herbal supplement used to treat pain, anxiety, depression and symptoms of opioid withdrawal, has also been linked to three dozen non-salmonella-related deaths.

There is aditional information on the recall on the FDA website and the CDC website. The outbreak resulted in 265 illnesses in eight states. Another 22 people said they ate shelled eggs before contracting salmonella, the CDC reported.
