The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a statement the eggs are connected to at least 22 cases of salmonella infection.

About 207 million eggs supplied by a North Carolina farm are being recalled after more than 20 consumers became ill from suspected salmonella poisoning.

The recall arose after illnesses were reported in East Coast states.

The recall is the largest of shell eggs in the United States since 2010, according to Food Safety News.

In an announcement posted to its website on Friday, the FDA reported that Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana, recalled the eggs distributed from the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina. The recall is equivalent to nearly 10 days production at the farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day.

After Bashing Amazon, Trump Orders Postal Service Review
A White House official said the presidential order was meant to come up with solutions to the problems at the Postal Service. Package deliveries have been rising year over year, so some suggest Amazon is actually helping USPS stay financially afloat.

The FDA said the eggs can potentially be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, which is an organism that could cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Eggs from the North Carolina farm were sold to restaurants and in supermarkets under multiple brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms and Sunshine Farms. The agency inspected the farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day from 3 million laying hens.

Symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain.

Rose Acre Farms officials didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
