As of Friday, the FDA states there have been 22 reported illnesses on the East Coast traced back to a farm in Hyde County, N.C. The FDA notes that the farm produces 2.3 million eggs per day and has a USDA inspector on site daily.

The recall is equivalent to nearly 10 days production at the farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day. The elderly and those with weakened immune systems should also be wary, the FDA reports.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said on Twitter. Numerous eggs were sold in Food Lions stores. The eggs were sold through retail stores and to restaurants via direct delivery. Approximately 206,749,248 eggs are being recalled. She said she didn't have information on whether Food Lion customers were among those who got sick. If you have questions, call Rose Acre Farms at 855-215-5730 between 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. EST.
