Egg recall for salmonella August 2010ARE THE EGGS IN YOUR FRIGE INCLUDED? SEE LIST HERE

Salmonella can cause three different kinds of illness:  gastroenteritis, typhoid fever, and bacteremia. 

Symptoms of Salmonella gastroenteritis include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, fever, nausea, and/or vomiting. In mild cases diarrhea may be non-bloody, occur several times per day, and not be very voluminous; in severe cases it may be frequent, bloody and/or mucoid, and of high volume.

Fever generally occurs in the 100°F to 102°F (38°C to 39°C) range. Vomiting is less common than diarrhea. Headaches, myalgias (muscle pain), and arthralgias (joint pain) are often reported as well. Whereas the diarrhea typically lasts 24 to 72 hours, patients often report fatigue and other nonspecific symptoms lasting 7 days or longer.

Hi Ann, I don't think any of the eggs in my fridge were included in the recall, but I'm going to double check.  Thanks for the reminder:)
