Following a spate of illnesses, an Indiana Farm is is voluntarily recalling eggs that originated from and were sold in North Carolina due to potential Salmonella contamination.

A company has recalled more than 200 million eggs after an outbreak of salmonella was traced to one of its farms in North Carolina.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella Braenderup can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The recall was voluntary on Rose Acre Farms' part. The farm has 3 million laying hens with a USDA inspector on-site daily, the agency said.

The FDA says anyone who purchased the eggs should discard them or return them to where they were purchased for a refund.
