O.C. company voluntarily recalls Wright eggs

FULLERTON, Calif. The eggs were distributed to food wholesalers, retail centers and food service companies in in 14 states, including California and Nevada between April and August.

They come from /*Wright County Egg*/, one of two Iowa farms involved in the recall of half a billion eggs over concerns of salmonella.

Also, Iowa's Hillandale Farms recalled its eggs after laboratory tests confirmed illnesses linked to them.

The recalled eggs were distributed under the brand names Hillandale Farms, Sunny Farms, Sunny Meadow, Wholesome Farms and West Creek.

A /*Food and Drug Administration*/ (FDA) spokeswoman said the recall is related to an earlier one involving Wright County Egg, which has already recalled 380 million eggs.

The FDA said the strain of salmonella poisoning is the same.

Industry watchdogs say the government has been slow to act on food safety.

The /*Centers for Disease Control*/ (CDC) and the FDA are urging consumers to pay attention to egg cartons with these numbers:

1026, 1413, 1946, 1720, 1942, 1951, 1686, 1091

Those eggs are tainted.

It's the only full-proof way to keep yourself safe because eggs with salmonella look, smell and taste normal.
