WASHINGTON, DC — One New Jersey resident is among 35 people in nine states infected with salmonella linked to eggs produced by a farm in Hyde County, N.C., according to an update by the Food & Drug Administration. 

Some 207 millions eggs were voluntarily recalled in April by Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Ind., because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella braenderup, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others who have weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals who become infected can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.  

In addition to New Jersey, the eggs were sold in Colorado, Florida, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. Of the 35 people affected to date, 11 have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported. No other information on the affected New Jerseyan was released.
