The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said to date 22 people have been sickened by the eggs

The recall covers over 200 million eggs that were distributed nine states including West Virginia and Virginia through retail stores and restaurants. Twenty-two illnesses have been reported.

The affected eggs are from plant number P-1065 with the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package.

The infections were first reported in early March, and a lab on April 11 confirmed that a sample from the Hyde County farm matched a strain that was spurring the illness, the FDA said.

According to Mayo Clinic, the possible signs and symptoms of salmonella infection include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, abdominal cramps, blood in the stool and headaches.

The farm produces 2.3 million eggs a day.

Alternatively, bacteria in the hen's ovary or oviduct can get to the egg before the shell forms around it, according to the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

More than 200 million eggs were recalled by an IN farm operation after a report of 22 illnesses IN connection with a salmonella outbreak.

Rose Acre Farms in IN voluntarily recalled more than 200 million eggs this week over salmonella fears.

The notice lists varieties of a Food Lion store brand as well as some cartons available as the Great Value brand, which is sold at Walmart.

Rose Acre Farms officials didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment. "Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund", FDA boss Scott Gottlieb tweeted over the weekend. Severe cases may require hospitalization. Children are the most at-risk. After a couple of weeks, the FDA says it, and the CDC and state agencies were able to identify the source of the eggs connected to the outbreak.

No other Florida stores were affected by the recall.
