There have been a lot of questions about the nationwide egg recall issued last week. Over the weekend the FDA added another egg manufacturer to the recall. So more eggs are now part of the recall including some sold here in Texas.
Eggs are distributed under the following brand names: Hillandale Farms, Sunny Farms, and Sunny Meadow in 6-egg cartons, dozen-egg cartons, 18-egg cartons, 30-egg package, and 5-dozen cases. Loose eggs are packaged under the following brand names: Wholesome Farms and West Creek in 15 and 30-dozen tray packs. The loose eggs may also be repackaged by customers.
The only eggs affected by this recall have plant numbers P1860 or P1663 and Julian dates as follows:
- P1860 – Julian dates ranging from 099 to 230
- P1663 – Julian dates ranging from 137 to 230
Here in the Austin area Walmart is the only grocery chain affected by the recall.
The company has removed eggs sold under the brand names "Sparboe Farms, Dean Foods, Hillandale Farms and Cal-Maine Foods." You may still see those brands on store shelves because only certain "lots" were pulled.
Walmart's "Great Value" brand and "Sam's Club" eggs are NOT affected by the recall.
Here are some terrific resources for anyone looking to help identify the recalled eggs:
