Nationwide Egg Recall: Recall expands to more than half a billion eggs (LIST)

The recall from U.S. factory farms has expanded to more than half a billion eggs. The recalled lots (list below) are confirmed to have been tainted with Salmonella and have sickened more than one thousand people. The enormity of the contamination has renewed concerns about the dangers of factory farming:
Dr. Marion Nestle of the department of nutrition, food studies, and public health at New York University, and the author of "Food Politics" and "What to Eat", is a member of the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production. She toured several factory farms last year.

"It's hard to explain unless you actually see one of these places," she tells CBS News. "Try to imagine an enormous warehouse, as long as two or more city blocks, packed with hundreds of thousands of chickens. And that's 'free range.' Otherwise they are caged six to nine in a cage. If one gets sick, they all get sick."
There are links and lists below with recall information. One possible way to avoid the consequences of factory farming is to buy local, small farmed and, where possible, organic.

Farmer's markets (worldwide): Link

The egg recall is expected to expand with more reports of illness expanding as the Centers for Disease Control record more incidents. The symptoms of Salmonella poisoning can include:

1. Nausea
2. Diarrhea
3. Abdominal pain
4. Vomiting
5. Fever (typically max ~102F)
6. Chills
7. Headache
8. Muscle Pains
9. Blood in the Stool (rare)

If you think you might have salmonella poisoning, consult your doctor immediately and drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration.

CDC Advice to Consumers:

• Don’t eat recalled eggs or products containing recalled eggs. Recalled eggs might still be in grocery stores, restaurants, and consumers' homes. Consumers who have recalled eggs should discard them or return them to their retailer for a refund.
• Individuals who think they might have become ill from eating recalled eggs should consult their health care providers.
• Keep eggs refrigerated at ≤ 45° F (≤7° C) at all times.
• Discard cracked or dirty eggs.
• Wash hands, cooking utensils, and food preparation surfaces with soap and water after contact with raw eggs.
• Eggs should be cooked until both the white and the yolk are firm and eaten promptly after cooking.
• Do not keep eggs warm or at room temperature for more than 2 hours.
• Refrigerate unused or leftover egg- containing foods promptly.
• Avoid eating raw eggs.
• Avoid restaurant dishes made with raw or undercooked, unpasteurized eggs. Restaurants should use pasteurized eggs in any recipe (such as Hollandaise sauce or Caesar salad dressing) that calls for raw eggs.
• Consumption of raw or undercooked eggs should be avoided, especially by young children, elderly persons, and persons with weakened immune systems or debilitating illness.
