Salmonella can cause serious and even deadly infections in children or elderly adults. "Rose Acre Farms takes food safety and the welfare of our hens, workers, and consumers very seriously". For Publix and Sunups egg cartons, people should check their cartoons for plant number P-1359D and Julian date 048A or 049A with best by dates of April 2 and April 3.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said. However, among those affected are the Great Value brand sold by Walmart and the Crystal Farms brand sold by Target. "This percentage is significantly higher than results from a survey of healthy people in which (38 percent) of respondents reported eating any eggs away from home in the week before they were interviewed".

The affected eggs came from one of the company's farms, located in Hyde County, North Carolina.

The report said inspectors spent March 26 to April 11 at the Rose Acre Farms egg operation in Pantego, N.C. and found "unacceptable rodent activity" and dirty equipment.
