Salmonella Cases Tied to Recalled Eggs

Associated Press

The state of Alaska has confirmed at least two cases of salmonella matching the strain tied to recalled eggs. Greg Wilkinson, a spokesman for the state health department, says that in at least one of the cases, in Anchorage, the person ate eggs. He says it’s not yet clear whether the second person, in Homer, also did. The state reports a suspected case of salmonella in Girdwood but tests are pending. He says that person reported eating raw egg in cookie dough.  Kimberly Stryker, an environmental program manager with the state Department of Environmental Conservation, says at least one statewide retailer in Alaska reports receiving eggs affected by the massive recall. She didn’t identify the retailer but says the eggs were repackaged under the Olympia Valley label.
