Dangerous Salmonella Outbreak Just South Of St. Louis
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
An outbreak of
salmonella has injured several people and has been traced to eggs from the Good Earth
Egg Company. The Missouri company has begun the process of a product recall
after eight people in three states became sick after consuming eggs from
the Good Earth Egg Company.
Bonne Terre, Missouri is the home to The Good Earth Egg Company, just 50
miles south of St. Louis. Thankfully, no deaths have been reported. However,
two people have been hospitalized. According to officials, the majority
of the cases were reported in Missouri. There has been one case each in
Illinois and Kansas. Authorities say a restaurant in Missouri has been
linked to three of the reported cases.
The outbreak is not the first time the company has been under fire for
contamination. The Good Earth Company was linked to a salmonella outbreak
earlier this year in January 2016, after 52 people got sick from consuming
their eggs. According to the Centers for Disease Control, consumers should
not consume eggs from the Good Earth Company and restaurants should not
use the company’s eggs in any food. An investigation into the salmonella
outbreak is ongoing. For more information regarding the recalled product,
