August 20, 2010 update on Salmonella outbreak and multi-state egg recall.
Illnesses in at least seven additional people in Minnesota have been connected with an expanded multi-state recall of eggs from an Iowa producer due to contamination with Salmonella. This brings the total number of cases in Minnesota linked to the recall to 14. The additional Salmonella Enteriditis cases were identified as part of a restaurant outbreak in Bemidji, Minnesota in May. Shell eggs were identified as the likely source of this outbreak and were traced back by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and FDA to Hillandale Farms of New Hampton, Iowa. Eggs from Hillandale Farms have now been included in an expanded egg recall that also includes Wright County Egg.
