WASHINGTON (AP) - Evidence of salmonella has been found at an Ohio egg farm that is linked to two Iowa egg farms responsible for a massive recall earlier this year.
Cal-Maine Foods Inc., the nation's biggest egg seller and distributor, said it is recalling 288,000 eggs the company had purchased from supplier Ohio Fresh Eggs after a test showed salmonella at the Ohio farm.
No illnesses have been reported. According to Cal-Maine Foods, the Ohio Fresh eggs were distributed in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.
Austin "Jack" DeCoster, owner of one of the two Iowa egg farms that was linked to 1,600 salmonella illnesses earlier this year,has been a financial backer of Ohio Fresh Egg. The company did not immediately return a call for comment.
