Cage-free producer recalls eggs for Salmonella risk

Gravel Ridge Farms, a free-cage poultry and egg producer, is recalling n unspecified number of eggs, regardless of date stamps, from grocery stores and restaurants because of potential contamination with Salmonella. Confirmed illnesses have been linked to the eggs, according to an announcement made by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The company’s notice says it distributed the eggs to retailers and restaurants “primarily” in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. The products were delivered between 25 June and September 6 and the shipments stopped after illnesses linked to the consumption of Gravel Ridge Farms eggs were reported.
If any consumers have Gravel Ridge Farms eggs in their refrigerator, they should be discarded, regardless of the date stamped on the package. The recall was initiated because reported illnesses were confirmed at locations using Gravel Ridge Farm Eggs, and we are voluntarily recalling out of an abundance of caution,” the company owners said in the notice.
Gravel Ridge Farms owners announced the recall two days after receiving notice from the FDA on September 6 that their eggs might be contaminated with Salmonella, according to the company notice.
