Check your eggs, as more than 200 million are being recalled because of potential contamination of salmonella.

According to the FDA, 22 illnesses have been reported in connection with the eggs to date.

According to the FDA, the eggs were distributed from the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina, and reached consumers in New York and New Jersey as well as Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia through retail stores and restaurants via direct delivery.

The eggs that are part of the recall can be identified by the plant number, P-1065, with the Julian date range of 011 through 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package. The FDA, urges you to stop using the recalled eggs right away and return them to the store you bought them from for a full refund.

Healthy individuals can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
