Rose Acre Farms in Seymour, Indiana, has voluntarily recalled 206,749,248 eggs due to fears they may have been contaminated with salmonella.

Thus far, 22 illnesses have been reported.

Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting in healthy people, but can cause serious infections and even deaths in the elderly and in those with compromised immune systems.

The eggs were distributed in the following states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia to both retail stores and restaurants.

Some of the eggs included in the recall were sold at Walmart (Great Value) and Food Lion.  

According to the FDA, the affected eggs are from plant number P-1065 with the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package. Go here for a complete list of brands and package sizes.

The FDA urges consumers who have purchased affected eggs to immediately discontinue their use and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
