Data available on this page:
Video: The Shell Egg Rule

In the summer of 2010, epidemiologic investigations conducted by health officials in California, Colorado, and Minnesota revealed several restaurants or events where more than one person who fell ill with Salmonella Enteriditis had eaten.  Information from these investigations suggested that shell eggs were the likely source of infections in many of these restaurants or events.  And on August 13, 2010, Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa, conducted a nationwide voluntary recalls of shell eggs that it had shipped since May 19, 2010. 


We are always looking to improve the information that is made available to the public.  You can provide any comments and suggestions for FDA's Data Gateway by sending an e-mail to webmail@oc.fda.gov or by commenting on the transparency blog post announcing the availability of these data sets.
