Eggs sold in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee recalled over salmonella concerns

ATLANTA – An Alabama farm has recalled its eggs after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked them to a multi-state salmonella outbreak.

According to the Atlanta-based CDC, eggs from Gravel Ridge Farms in Cullman, Alabama, could possibly be contaminated.

On Sept. 8, the CDC said Gravel Ridge Farms recalled packages of a dozen and 2.5 dozen eggs in cardboard containers with UPC code 7-06970-38444-6. Recalled eggs have “best if used by” dates of July 25, 2018 through Oct. 3, 2018.

Recalled eggs were sold in grocery stores and to restaurants in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.

The CDC is urging anyone who may have bought the eggs affected by the recall to return any Gravel Ridge Farms eggs to the store for a refund or throw them away, regardless of the “best if used by” date. The CDC says even if some eggs were eaten and no one got sick, do not eat the remaining eggs. In addition, the CDC is encouraging consumers to wash and sanitize drawers or shelves in refrigerators where recalled eggs were stored.
