So far, 22 people have gotten sick from the eggs.

The recall was issued through an "abundance of caution" due to reported illnesses in the East Coast.

The eggs that are part of the recall can be identified by the plant number, P-1065, with the Julian date range of 011 through 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package.

If you love eggs from your head to your legs, make sure you check to see if the eggs in your refrigerator are on this recall list.

"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", says Scott Gottlieb, the FDA Commissioner.

"Healthy individuals infected with salmonella braenderup can experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain", the website states. "The facility includes 3 million laying hens with a USDA inspector on-site daily", said the FDA. While most recover without treatment, according to the release, the elderly and young children are most likely to suffer severe illness.
