Egg-Linked Salmonella Outbreak Continues to Sicken Victims

In the weeks since we last reported on the salmonella outbreak that led to one of the largest egg recalls in United States history, the illnesses have only spread and the hospitalizations have only increased. As of May 2018, 207 million eggs have been recalled and 35 people have reported falling ill.

Eggs are one of the most commonly consumed foods in the United States. In addition to being a breakfast staple, they are a critical ingredient in many baked goods and an emulsifier for many food products. Eggs as ingredients are difficult to avoid, which means that an individual can still be at risk of contracting salmonella or another type of food poisoning if he or she chooses to avoid eggs.
