Gottlieb said the agency's testing connected the recalled eggs to the people who got sick.

Almost 207 million eggs produced at a farm in Hyde County, N.C., are being voluntarily recalled because of concerns of contamination with the salmonella bacteria, the egg company announced.

The recall is the largest of shell eggs in the USA since 2010, according to Food Safety News. The outbreak "led to extensive interviews and eventually a thorough FDA (Food and Drug Administration) inspection of the Hyde County farm, which produces 2.3 million eggs a day". The recall also lists eggs that were distributed to the Waffle House restaurant chain.

The FDA said the recall affects eggs from a farm in Hyde County, N.C., owned by the Seymour, Indiana, -based Rose Acre Farms.

The eggs were distributed to Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, New Jersey, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb tweeted. "Throw them away or return them to place of purchase for credit or refund".

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

"Healthy individuals infected with salmonella braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain", the website states.

Food Lion has pulled the recalled eggs from shelves of the approximately 400 stores where they were available, said spokeswoman Emma Inman.

Rose Acre Farms officials didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
