The outbreak is linked to eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms in Indiana.

The eggs were sold under multiple brands, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms and Sunups.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an update Thursday on the salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of about 200 million eggs produced by an IN farm.

"Illnesses that occurred after March 23, 2018, might not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill with Salmonella and when the illness is reported".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday that the number of illnesses had risen to 35 - an increase of 12 cases since the initial egg recall notice.

Rose Acre Farms announced the voluntary recall of 206,749,248 eggs that were sold under several brands and distributed to retail stories and restaurants. The advisory also warned that the tainted eggs should be disposed of, or returned to the place of purchase for a refund. They were sold at Walmart and Food Lion stores. Around 400 people die every year from acute salmonellosis, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

On the packaging of the recalled eggs, consumers can find the plant No. P-1065, and a Julian date range of 011 through date of 102.

"We're disheartened by the additional reported illnesses in recent days and we apologize to anyone who may have been sickened or who has a family member or friend who may have taken ill because of any of our eggs", Gene Grabowski, a representative for Rose Acre Farms, told The Daily Meal. 450 people were sickened by three different salmonella outbreaks in 1990, all of which were tied to Rose Acre Farms, according to the Post.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can be found on the inside of contaminated eggs and on eggshells, too.

Salmonella is a bacterial infection that causes symptoms such as a diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.
