Inspectors found multiple violations of federal food safety regulations at the Rose Acre Farms facility.

The CDC is warning customers to avoid eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms, the company behind April's massive egg recall.

The eggs were sold under brand names Country Daybreak, Crystal Farms, Coburn Farms, Sunshine Farms, Publix, Sunups, Glenview, Great Value.

As of May 10, the CDC reports that 35 illnesses have been reported across Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. In 1990, three separate outbreaks that sickened about 450 people in three states were traced back to Rose Acre Farms. They were sold at Walmart and Food Lion stores. "We vow to do better in the future". In response, the government prohibited the company from selling eggs from three IN farms where the contaminated eggs originated and required expensive cleanups that threatened to put the company out of business. It is being urged that if you or anyone you know present these symptoms after ingested recalled eggs to contact your doctor and get treatment immediately. Around 400 people die every year from acute salmonellosis, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). It can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps in sickened individuals; for older adults, infants and people with weakened immune systems, salmonella can cause more serious, even life-threatening, complications.
