At least 11 people were hospitalized due to complications, but no deaths were reported, announced the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday.
The eggs were sold in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.
Salmonella causes severe and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. It is generally contracted by contaminated poultry, meat, eggs and water and affects the intestinal tract.
Chickens can bring the bacteria to eggs because eggs leave chickens through the same passage as feces. Alternatively, bacteria in the ovary or fallopian tube of the hen can reach the egg before the shell forms around it.
Symptoms include fever, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain.
