INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - An Indiana company is recalling 200 million eggs for possible salmonella contamination.

Rose Acre Farms of Seymour announced the recall Friday. The affected eggs were sold at Walmart and Food Lion stores.

The FDA reports 22 illnesses connected to these eggs.

While Rose Acre Farms is based in Seymour, the affected eggs were distributed from their farm in Hyde County, North Carolina, and reached consumers in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery.

Although Indiana is not listed in the states where the eggs were distributed, some Hoosiers have commented that they have the recalled eggs.

When we contacted the company, they reiterated that the eggs were not sold in Indiana. The recall includes several brands of eggs with dozens of serial numbers. To see the full list, click here.

The recall involves eggs with the plant number P-1065, with the Julian date range of 011 through 012 printed on either side of the carton or package.

Salmonella can cause serious and even deadly infections in children or elderly adults. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Consumers who have purchased shells eggs are urged to immediately discontinue use of the recalled eggs and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at (855) 215-5730 between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
