Gravel Ridge Farms Recalls Eggs due to Salmonella

September 20, 2018

Gravel Ridge Farms has recalled Cage Free Large Eggs due to a potential contamination of Salmonella. The recall was initiated because reported illnesses were confirmed at locations using Gravel Ridge Farm Eggs, and the farm chose to voluntarily recall out of an abundance of caution.

On September 6, the firm was notified by FDA that the product they supplied may be contaminated with Salmonella. The farm housed nearly 15,000 free-range birds and the eggs were sold in Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia.    The Salmonella enteritidis strain was isolated from consumers and a food item prepared by a local caterer.  Fourteen people, in three states, have been reported as infected with the strain of Salmonella enteritidis.
