Steamboat briefs: Eggs recalled because of salmonella risk
Steamboat Springs — The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Monday announced that Wright County Egg, of Galt, Iowa, is voluntarily recalling eggs produced by its farms on specific dates because of possible contamination with salmonella enteritidis, a foodborne bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems, according to a news release.
The release states:
Eggs affected by the recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers and food service companies in Colorado, California, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The recall includes eggs packaged under the following brand names: Lucerne (Safeway Brand), Albertsons, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps.
The eggs are packaged in cartons containing six, 12 and 18 eggs with production date codes ranging from 136 to 225, and plant numbers 1026, 1413 and 1946. Production date codes and plant numbers can be found stamped on the end of each egg carton.
The stamp begins with the letter P, followed by the plant number and then the production date code (for example, P-1946 223).
