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

The FDA says 22 illnesses have been reported so far.

The FDA said the eggs can potentially be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup, which is an organism that could cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Rose Acre Farms in Seymour, Indiana voluntarily recalled 206,749,248 eggs due to the health scare, the FDA said in an announcement Friday.

The Hyde County farm produces 2.3 million eggs each day.

Rose Acre Farms issued the voluntary recall in nine states for multiple brands including Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Sunshine Farms and Great Value.

"Healthy individuals infected with salmonella braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain", the website states.

The affected eggs are from plant number P-1065. The eggs were sold through retail stores and to restaurants via direct delivery. In rare circumstances, exposure to salmonella can lead to arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis if the organism enters the blood stream.

Alternatively, bacteria in the hen's ovary or oviduct can get to the egg before the shell forms around it, according to the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Those who purchased eggs from the notified lot were asked to immediately return them to the shop from where they purchased it, for a refund.
