The FDA, along with Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa, has issued a recall of 380 million eggs after a salmonella outbreak sickened people in four states.

Salmonella can cause serious illness resulting in hospitalization and even death in a few cases. The very young, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems are most at risk for serious illness.

Symptoms of foodborne illness can include severe dehydration, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, headache, nausea, sever abdominal cramping and vomiting.
