The Associated Press reports this morning that an egg recall prompted by a salmonella outbreak has been expanded to 17 states and 380 million eggs.

According to the story, “eggs affected by the expanded recall were distributed to food wholesalers, distribution centers and food service companies in Georgia, California, Colorado, Minnesota, Arkansas, Arizona, Illinois, Iowa, Oklahoma, Oregon, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.”

The eggs were distributed by Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa, to food wholesalers, distribution centers and food service companies.

No deaths have been reported, said Dr. Christopher Braden, a CDC epidemiologist involved in the investigation.”
