The FDA is recalling 206 million eggs due to potential salmonella contamination.

Have you heard the news? 🥚

According to the FDA, over 206 million eggs have been voluntarily recalled due to a potential contamination of Salmonella Braenderup, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections. To date, 22 illnesses have been reported in connection with these contaminated eggs.

The recalled eggs have been sold in various restaurants and retail stores, including Walmart and Food Lion, in the following nine states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The affected eggs will have the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102 printed on the side of the carton or package. If you have any of these recalled eggs in your household, immediately discontinue use and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Go here for more details.

    I just want to say thank you for posting things like this and keeping your readers informed on things that are important, even when they don’t really have to do with deals or coupons. I love H2S!

    • Susan

      Ditto…The little things like this is what makes me love H2S:)

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You are very welcome! Glad to help spread the word! Thanks a ton for your kind comment! We sure appreciate the sweet feedback!

        plus the original articles are saying to look for farm/plant/warehouse P1065 on the side of your carton, the upc may match but if the farm number and day of production do not match, your eggs should be fine—-too many people are seeing the matching upc and freaking out, all the upcs are the same so that the price scans right at the register but the eggs come from different farms and have different production days

    • Rochelle

      This was so much more helpful than the email Walmart sent me. They just said their records showed I bought eggs with a particular UPC and told me to stop eating them and bring them in for a refund. It didn’t include any info about the plant no. or date. I just checked mine, and mine aren’t affected. Thanks for the additional info. So glad I don’t have to make an unnecessary trip.

    Wow, thankfully I only get mine from Target or Dillons and these don’t seem to be part of the recall

  5. todd

    I guess California dodged that bullet.

  6. Cara

    Yikes!! I have an almost empty carton of the recalled eggs.

    I wonder how they got contaminated. I get my eggs from my own chickens. I just want to share that the in expensive white eggs come from chickens kept in cages. Cage free eggs mean the chickens are kept in a great big barn with no individual cages, free range chickens have access to the outdoors. Also caged chickens are often fed arsenic to make the shells easier to crack. I’m not a solo orgainc eater but I do pay slightly more for better eggs and bananas. (the cost to upgrade to organic banas is very little).

    • Jenna

      Hi there, Can I ask why you pay extra for organic bananas? I thought that with such a thick skin, the part we eat would be protected from pesticides. I do try to buy some organic produce, but because of the cost I try to prioritize, starting with the “dirty dozen.” Thanks 🙂

      • Jenny

        Bananas are heavily treated with chemicals and organic bananas are only .15 more per pound then the regular non organic so the extra cost is not much.

    • Rochelle

      Chickens aren’t fed arsenic anymore – that stopped a couple of years back (at least in North America), and it was done to kill parasites in the feed. I used to buy cage free when I had more expendable income, but the cost is just too much. Just checked my Walmart grocery app: $.62 for a dozen of regular eggs, $2.98-3.47 for cage free. I usually buy 36 eggs every grocery trip as I cook and bake a lot.

    • 50ShadesofLipstick

      “Cage-free” and “free range” aren’t regulated though. So in reality, cage-free chickens are kept in multi-level aviaries indoors, which is barely an improvement from actual cages. And access to the outdoors doesn’t mean that the chickens actually get to go outdoors. From what I have read, we ideally should be buying pasture-raised chickens from farmers that we know or trust- so as to ensure that they treat their animals ethically, since even pasture-raised birds can be treated inhumanely. Hope that helps.

    • barbara

      Im’ confused you say -“I get my eggs from my own chickens ” I get that part but then you say you ” I do pay slightly more for better eggs and bananas. So if you have your own chickens why do you buy BETTER eggs?

  8. ana

    That’s so mean to treat an animal that way😣 it doesn’t matter what kind of animal, it should never be kept in a cage. I’ll pay more so the chicken can run free and go outside.

  9. jess

    Luckily salmonella is killed by the cooking process so IF you fully cook your eggs AND if you wash your hands after touching the shells before you touch anything else, you should be fine – even if you ate these eggs.

    Now the lettuce recall on the other hand … yikes

  10. Hazzle

    The affected eggs, from plant number P-1065 with the Julian date range of 011 through date of 102. NOT all farms

  11. Judy Trac

    So close not in my state

  12. ds

    Geez… thank you

  13. Sally

    Speaking of eggs, I just bought an 18 pack of large eggs at Walmart and they are all no larger then medium size.

    I noticed the difference immediately when I opened them and they looked so tiny in their divider cups.

    Anyone else experience this?

  15. Britt54

    I’m in Georgia and had a carton.

  16. momo

    Didn’t see ant recall on Sams Club eggs (they are Walmart sister store). I have some boiled eggs & I threw the carton away… wondering if I should just toss them…?


    Sadly, we used ours to do Easter eggs but had a few left in the carton. We check and sure enough! 😒

    😳 yikes

  20. Ashley

    Lots of these showing up in Georgia (near the SC state-line) as well.

  21. cristine

    Makes me glad I have chickens.

  22. 4ella

    I just got some eggs from Walmart on Sunday but don’t have carton anymore. I usually take them out and put a different container. How do I know if those are affected?

  23. CoreyS

    This is a comment for anyone who makes assumptions on how the poultry industry works, unless you own and operate a facility (such as myself) it is likely you don’t fully understand the process. My cage-free layer barn is highly regulated and both the birds and eggs are tested regularly. Just because I have 40,000 chickens doesn’t mean I don’t care about each and every one of them, they are my income so it’s in my best interest to treat them the best that I can.

      • CoreyS

        The short answer is Yes. My barn is nothing like described in that article. But the internet is a great thing and will tell you anything you want to hear.

        • AZ

          That doesn’t really clarify anything, but okay. It’s great that you treat your animals humanely but you can’t assume that everyone raising chickens does.

  24. meli96

    I’m so glad we have our own chickens. I’ve been to our local Fred meyer and seen a lady pulling eggs from other cartons and putting them in a different carton. Well what if it has a different date, different brand altogether?

  25. v

    Seriously just got done with “breakfast for dinner” and saw this post. Husband popped up to check the numbers. We are good. Thanks for keeping us all informed.

  26. Paige

    I, too, just want to say thank you for posting about this. This is the one website (I don’t do social media) that I look at every day. I appreciate all of the informative posts. 🙂

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thank you for being such a loyal reader, Paige! We sure do appreciate the sweet comment! You are very welcome!

  27. Linda

    Thank you to Colin and your crew for keeping us up to date on this kind of info. And yes I did notice that the last dozen of eggs I bought at Walmart were more like medium then large.
