Here we go again...check the carton to make sure your eggs aren't part of the recall.

RODALE NEWS, EMMAUS, PA—Salmonella-tainted eggs from an industrial farming operation have set off another large-scale egg recall, less than three months after filthy conditions at two Iowa factory farms set off a massive recall involving 380 million eggs.


The latest egg recall involves 288,000 eggs produced at Ohio Fresh Eggs. A routine test detected salmonella three weeks ago, but the distributor, Cal-Main Foods, says it was only notified this month. No illnesses have been reported yet. According to the Associated Press, the owner of the Iowa farms involved in the summer recall is also an investor in the Ohio farm. The recall affects some eggs marketed as Sunny Meadow, Springfield Grocer, Sun Valley, and James Farm and were sold in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas. To find out if your carton is involved in the recall, check your carton numbers against the latest egg recall list.
