Another 16 people recalled that they ate dishes with egg at a restaurant, with representatives from the restaurants confirming to the CDC that they used shell eggs when preparing the dishes.

Consumers, restaurants and retailers are still advised not to eat, serve or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm.

The eggs were sold in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are a total of 35 reported illnesses in nine states and 11 hospitalizations, though no deaths have been reported. However, among those affected are the Great Value brand sold by Walmart and the Crystal Farms brand sold by Target. "We vow to do better in the future".

According to the Post, Rose Acre Farms has come under scrutiny in the past for salmonella contamination. "It's very hard to know that so they have to do a large recall".

The CDC's salmonella fact sheet states that the bacteria is responsible for about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths each year in the US, with over 80 percent of the illnesses traced to tainted food. It can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain among healthy people, but can lead to fatal infections among children younger than 5, adults older than 65 and those with weak immune systems.

As of Thursday, 35 people have been confirmed with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup.

In April, the Food and Drug Administration ordered a mandatory recall of kratom products manufactured by Las Vegas-based Triangle Pharmanaturals after investigators found that numerous products contained salmonella. Initially, 22 people were sickened. A list of the FDA recalled products can be found here. The outbreak resulted in 265 illnesses in eight states.

The company pulled 206 million eggs from shelves in April, but the CDC says some might still be developing infections.
