Two Egg Brands Added to Recall List

Wright County Egg, the Iowa company responsible for almost all of the eggs recalled because of salmonella, has announced that Cardenas Market stores in California and Nevada contain tainted eggs as well. Cardenas was notified at the time of the original recall and began quarantining, destroying, and returning eggs in the stores and distribution centers that may have been infected.

Cardenas Market eggs are labeled with plant number 1026, and have Julian dates ranging from 136 to 228. The eggs come packaged in cases of 60 and are overwrapped in plastic.

Trafficanda Egg Ranch brand eggs distributed to stores throughout California has also announced cases of salmonella linked to its Wright County supplied eggs. Trafficanda eggs are in 12 egg cartons, 20 egg over-wrapped packages and 60 egg over-wrapped packages. Plant numbers 1026, 1413, 1720, 1942, and 1946, and Julian dates ranging from 136 to 229 are on the packages.

Earliest Salmonella Cases

The earliest cases of salmonella linked to this outbreak may have occurred as far back as May 28 and 29 in California. Several people became sick after attending a prom or graduation party in Santa Clara County. Clusters of salmonella began popping up throughout California, as well as 22 other states, in June and July.

People across the country continue to be wary of what eggs are on the shelves as well as in their refrigerators. Salmonella can be deadly for some, but generally "only" sickens people for several days. Nausea, cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea are the symptoms.

If you or a loved one has become sick with salmonella from eating tainted eggs, please contact the experienced defective product attorneys at the Cochran Firm. We serve clients nationwide.
