The Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa is recalling 380 million eggs after being linked to an outbreak of salmonella poisonings in Colorado, California and Minnesota. State health officials say tainted eggs have sickened at least 266 Californians and seven in Minnesota.

The eggs were distributed around the country and packaged under the names Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemp. The Food and Drug Administration is investigating. Company officials say the FDA is on-site to review records and inspect barns.
