Good Earth Eggs produced in Bonne Terre, Missouri have been recalled due to a Salmonella contamination. Nearly a month ago, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services discovered the Salmonella bacteria at the facility and required it to be closed and thoroughly cleaned. Customers who had purchased Good Earth Eggs were instructed to fully cook the eggs before consumption. Unfortunately, illnesses have been reported and linked to the contaminated eggs prompting the recall. Cartons sold in a variety of sizes that include the Sell By Date of 02/05/2016 are the specific eggs being recalled, and they are sold at several retailers in Missouri and Illinois. Individuals in possession of the recalled eggs are encouraged to discard the eggs and contact Good Earth Eggs for a replacement. Salmonella bacteria can cause serious illnesses and individuals that are experiencing symptoms of Salmonella should contact their doctor.
