UNDATED (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The major egg recall has been expanded but local health and store officials say the eggs are not sold around this area.
The recall affects eggs sold under the following brands: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms, and Kemps.
Be sure to check the dates and codes stamped on the end of the eggs carton.
The plant numbers affected are P-1026, P-1413, and P-1946. The dates (recorded in the "Julian format") range from 136 to 225, according to a statement by the Egg Safety Center. For example, eggs in a carton marked with the number P-1026 137 should not be eaten.
If you have bought any of the suspicious eggs consumers can get a refund if they return them in their original carton to the store where they were bought.
To be extra safe...when cooking eggs on a stove top...make sure they reach a temperature of 155 degrees or well done.
Or if baking...make sure your dish reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
These temps will kill off the salmonella bacteria.
