Salmonella Tainted Eggs
Have you experienced food poisoning from recalled eggs?
After a recent Salmonella outbreak a number of citizens and government agencies have shown their concern regarding possible food borne illness cases. In collaboration with the FDA and CDC to find a common source of salmonella tainted eggs, investigations have been underway to find the providers. Some of the potential sources include Wright County Egg in Iowa and Hillandale Farms of Iowa, Inc.
These eggs could still be in grocery stores, restaurants, and even your home. If you feel that you have experienced food poisoning or become ill from consuming recalled eggs, it is best to consult with your doctor.
You have a right to compensation if you have eaten eggs and experienced food poisoning symptoms severe enough for you to visit a medical doctor. Persons infected with Salmonella Enteritidis usually experience the following food poisoning symptoms 12 to 72 hours after consumption:
- Abdominal cramps
The symptoms will usually last anywhere from four to seven days. The symptoms are more serious to elderly, infants, or those with impaired immune systems. In these cases, hospitalization may be necessary.
