A farm in IN is recalling more than 200 million eggs sold in nine states over salmonella fears.

Those who have purchased the eggs are urged to not use the product and return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

The notice said Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms was voluntarily recalling the eggs "through an abundance of caution". Some of the eggs brands involved in the recall were distributed at Food Lion stores, Walmart Inc. and Waffle House restaurants, the AP reported.

The company issued a statement saying its farm in Hyde County has about three million egg-laying hens, produces about 2.3 million eggs a day and has a United States Department of Agriculture inspector on-site daily.

Affected eggs were sold under multiple brand names, including Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms, Crystal Farms, Sunshine Farms, and Glenview.

She blamed the Security Council and Russia's actions for failing in its duty to hold those who use chemical weapons to account. President Donald Trump has expressed his intention to pull all United States forces out of Syria in the near future.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, twenty two illnesses have been reported to date.

The egg cartons needs to be labeled together with packing dates ranging throughout 102 from 011, with the plant range P-1065.

That led to an inspection of the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina that produced the eggs.

There are fears the eggs are contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, which FDA defines as, "an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems". The bacteria causes nausea, diarrhea and, in rare cases, death.

The recall came about after the illnesses were reported and the FDA inspected the North Carolina farm.
