Sparboe Farms announced late yesterday that it was "clarifying" its earlier egg recalls to include X-large, white eggs packaged under the Market Pantry and Sparboe Farms brand names., because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.

While the recall notice states that no confirmed illnesses have been linked to Sparboe's eggs, Target's Market Pantry eggs have been the focus of much attention on eFoodAlert since the first reports of the current Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak surfaced in mid-August. Several readers have reported that they (or one or more family members) became ill after eating Target's Market Pantry eggs.
Please contact your state or county health agency and FDA (click here for the FDA Consumer Complaint coordinator for your state) if you believe that you or a family member has become ill after consuming X-large white eggs packaged under the Sparboe Farms or Market Pantry brand names.
