More than 288,000 eggs from Ohio Fresh Eggs were recalled yesterday after testing positive for salmonella, Fox News reports. They were sent to Cal-Maine, which calls itself the largest producer and distributor of shell eggs in the U.S. Although the salmonella was detected by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in October, Fox reports, "some of the eggs were processed and repackaged by Cal-Maine's Green Forest, Arkansas, facility between October 9 and 12, 2010, yet Cal-Maine was only notified on November 5th." Wholesalers in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas received the eggs, but thus far no illness has been reported. For more information on the recall, see Cal-Maine's press release.
