September 7 - Sparboe Farms issues clarification on previously announced recall of shell eggs supplied by Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms.  One additional brand is linked to this recall associated with possible Salmonella contamination.  This information does not increase the total number of eggs Sparboe Farms purchased from Hillandale Farms, which was previously announced on August 27, 2010.  For more information on the recall, click here.

“I urge Hoosiers to check any shell eggs at home to verify they are not part of the national shell egg recall, especially now it has expanded,” said Scott Gilliam, food protection manager at the Indiana State Department of Health. “We are working closely with our federal and local partners on the recall and will report any new developments, as they occur. In the meantime, the public should continue monitoring the news for updates.”

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms usually begin 12 to 36 hours after exposure and last 4 to 7 days. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Individuals who believe they may have Salmonella should consult their health care provider.
