The U.S. government has ordered an Indiana business to recall about 200 million eggs after 22 consumers fell ill with salmonella food poisoning.
The eggs were widely distributed, including to Walmart and Food Lion supermarkets.
The eggs came from the company’s farm in Hyde Park, North Carolina.
The head office for the egg business is at Seymour, Indiana.
The farm has three million hens producing about 2.3 million eggs per day.
The bacterium strain involved is Salmonella braenderup.
