CDC: Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Gravel Ridge Farms Eggs

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 3, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- The multistate Salmonella outbreak linked to Gravel Ridge Farms cage-free large eggs has grown, and consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, serve, or sell the eggs, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

In a recent update, the CDC said 24 more illnesses have been reported since the last update on Sept. 10, bringing the total to 38 cases in seven states. Ten people have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.

Illnesses in the outbreak began on dates ranging from June 17 to Aug. 16, 2018. Gravel Ridge Farms recalled packages of a dozen and 2.5 dozen eggs in cardboard containers that were sold in grocery stores and to restaurants in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee.

The investigation is continuing, the CDC said. People who think they got sick from eating the recalled eggs should contact a health care provider, the agency advised.
