According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35 illnesses have been reported in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

Twelve more people from five states have been affected by the salmonella outbreak linked to the recall of millions of eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm. Some of the eggs were also sold at Food Lion stores under the store's brand and some were sold at Walmart under the Great Value brand.

According to the FDA, there have been 35 cases with 11 hospitalizations thus far and the outbreak has been traced back to a North Carolina farm.

Rose Acre Farms' recall is the largest involving eggs since 2010. "Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund".

While the eggs were recalled in April it is being reported that people began falling ill as early as November 2017 and are still getting ill as recently as last month. Rose Acre Farms voluntarily recalled more than 200,000 shell eggs on April 13 due to possible contamination with the bacteria.

In fact, the CDC reported that eight people in Virginia had been sickened as of May 9.

The symptoms, which include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, take about 12-72 hours after exposure to take effect.

Impacted brands include Country Daybreak, Coburn Farms, Crystal Farms, Sunshine Farms and Glenview. The FDA urges consumers to prepare eggs properly and recommends that anybody who believes they could be infected contacts their health care provider.

Most people recover in a week but some can get seriously sick for longer.
