No one wants to get sick from their food. One of the main jobs of governmental agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration is to ensure the quality of the food bought at grocers and in restaurants, but it looks as if there has been a major oversight recently. After hundreds of people have become sick as a result of Salmonella poisoning, health officials have decided recall an even higher number of eggs, reports a New York Injury Lawyer. Originally, the recall was for about 228 million eggs, but that number has now risen to 380 million.
According to a New York Injury Lawyer, people have been getting sick in states all over the United States. Fortunately, so far no deaths have been reported. It is known that eggs have been linked to illnesses in Colorado, California, Minnesota, Arizona, Nevada, Illinois, and Texas, although with how widespread those states are, it is entirely possible that more will become sick in other states.
Currently, the Food and Drug Administration is investigating the outbreak. The barns of several Iowa farms are being checked to ensure that no more tainted eggs get out, says a New York Injury Lawyer. No word has been given as of yet as to whether any of those who have become sick will be suing, but it is hard to imagine that they will not, as the cases will likely be very simply settled for substantial sums of money. Fortunately, none of the likely suits are for a fatal case of salmonella.
