TheDailyBeast.com: America's Worst Food Scares

Salmonella in Eggs - August 2010

In August 2010, Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms in Iowa voluntarily recalled half a billion eggs after a nationwide salmonella outbreak was traced back to the two large egg producers. In June and July, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention received reports of approximately 200 illnesses every week—four times greater than the historical weekly average. The recall, less than a month after a new egg safety rule aimed at reducing salmonella went into effect, involved more than two dozen different brands. The FDA called it "one of the largest shell egg recalls in recent history."
