August 24, 2010
The nation''s largest egg seller and distributor, Cal-Maine Foods Inc., said it is recalling about 800,000 dozen eggs related to an expanded recall tied to a salmonella outbreak, reports the Associated Press. Cal-Maine was notified by an Iowa egg producer that between April 9 and Aug. 19, the producer sold 32 truckloads of eggs, or about 800,000 dozen eggs, to the company. The affected products were added to the expanded nationwide recall. It wasn''t immediately clear which Iowa producer supplied the Cal-Maine eggs. Cal-Maine said the 800,000 dozen eggs account for about 0.3 percent of its total sales for that period.
