The Indiana State Department of Health reports the national egg recall has expanded. Hillandale Farms of Iowa is voluntarily recalling shell eggs because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has confirmed eggs affected by this recall were distributed in 14 states, including Indiana. State health officials say there are no reports of any human cases in Indiana of Salmonella Enteritidis associated with the current national egg recall.
Eggs are distributed under the following brand names: Hillandale Farms, Sunny Farms, and Sunny Meadow in 6-egg cartons, dozen-egg cartons, 18-egg cartons, 30-egg package, and 5-dozen cases. Loose eggs are packaged under the following brand names: Wholesome Farms and West Creek in 15 and 30-dozen tray packs. The loose eggs may also be repackaged by customers. The only eggs affected by this recall have plant numbers P1860 or P1663 and Julian dates as follows:
P1860 – Julian dates ranging from 099 to 230
P1663 – Julian dates ranging from 137 to 230
Only eggs with these plant numbers are affected – even though the brand name may be the same. Julian dates and plant codes can be found stamped on the end of the egg carton or printed on the case label. The plant number begins with the letter P and then the number. The Julian date follows the plant number, for example: P1860 230.
Consumers who believe they may have purchased these shell eggs should not eat them, but they can return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.
