In fact, the CDC reported that eight people in Virginia had been sickened as of May 9.

The eggs went to stores and restaurants in New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

IN farmers have issued a warning after at least 22 people have fallen ill.

Last month, more than 200 million eggs from the North Carolina farm were recalled because of bacterial contamination.

Contaminated eggs were sold under multiple brand names including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms, and Sunups. Some of the eggs were also distributed to Waffle House restaurants.

"We apologize to anyone who may have been sickened or who has a family member or friend who may have taken ill because of our eggs", the company said. So far, no deaths have been reported.

At least 35 people have been infected with a salmonella outbreak tied to the recall of more than 206 million eggs, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports. Days later, Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. issued its own recall for 23,400 dozen eggs that it bought from the farm.

The outbreak has been linked to eggs distributed by Rose Acre Farms, a family-owned business based in IN that describes itself as the second-largest egg producer in the U.S. The possibly tainted eggs were distributed from the farm between January 11 and April 12.

Salmonella can cause serious and even deadly infections in children or elderly adults.

Salmonella braenderup is a bacteria that can be found in raw foods and causes symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever, usually about 12 to 72 hours after infection, though the illness can sometimes take weeks to develop. Alternatively, bacteria in the hen's ovary or oviduct can get to the egg before the shell forms around it.

There is aditional information on the recall on the FDA website and the CDC website.
