A north central Iowa egg producer is voluntarily recalling eggs produced by its farms because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella. Wright County Egg of Galt is making the voluntary recall of products because testing at the company’s farm showed some of the eggs may contain the bacteria.
Consumers should return the eggs in the original carton to the store where they were purchased for a full refund. The eggs affected by this recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers and food service companies in Iowa, California, Illinois, Missouri, Colorado, Nebraska, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The eggs are packaged under the brand names including Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps.
There is more information about the recall on the web at “www.eggsafety.org“.
