In 2010, a salmonella outbreak sickened hundreds and led to the recall of half a billion eggs.
According to officials, 22 illnesses have been reported.
A farm based out of IN has voluntarily recalled more than 200 million eggs Saturday because they may have been contaminated with Salmonella, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana has voluntarily recalled 206,749,248 eggs because they may potentially be contaminated by Salmonella Braederup.
Twenty-two illnesses have been reported.
Young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems are most susceptible to serious complications from salmonella, according to the FDA.
Healthy individuals infected with SalmonellaBraenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
The states impacted include North and South Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
"Consumers who have purchased shells eggs are urged to immediately discontinue use of the recalled eggs and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund", the FDA said in a statement. In grocery stores, they were sold under brands Country Daybreak; Crystal Farms; Coburn Farms; Sunshine Farms; Glenview; Great Value; and Food Lion's store brand.
Chickens can pass the bacteria to eggs because the eggs leave hens through the same passageway as feces.
