ALBANY, GA (WALB) – What's in your refrigerator? If you've got eggs, you may have a problem. Millions of cartons of eggs have been recalled because of salmonella contamination, and the recall has now been expanded to Georgia.
While cooking eggs thoroughly usually kills salmonella, officials are urging people who have the recalled eggs to either throw away or return potentially tainted eggs.
380 Million eggs sounds like a lot of eggs, and it is, but according to the Egg Safety Center, less than one percent of all U.S. eggs are affected by this recall. Of course, that's little comfort, if you have the tainted eggs in your icebox.
The incredible edible egg is making some people incredibly sick. "That does concern me because we use a lot of eggs," said Donna Mock.
And a lot of eggs, hundreds of millions of them, have now been recalled. We broke the news to Mock who had just finished up her grocery shopping. She said, "I was kind of surprised to hear that."
And had she heard the news earlier, she may have altered her grocery list. What did you just walk out with? "A dozen eggs. Hahahaha."
Mock bought her eggs here, at Winn-Dixie on Dawson Road in Albany. None of the eggs sold here have been involved in the recall. That makes Mock feel better, but she does worry about how her family could be impacted if she brought some of the recalled eggs home.
Mock said, "My mother's elderly and we keep her and that concerns me because when she won't eat anything else, she'll eat a scrambled egg, so that makes you stop and think about whether you want to feed her a scrambled egg or not."
Scrambling around for something else to eat, in hopes of avoiding any rotten eggs.
Just to be clear, Winn-Dixie eggs have not been recalled.
So far, only eggs in their shells have been recalled, but eggs affected by the expanded recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers, food service companies.
Some 300 cases of salmonella have been reported.
