A massive egg recall issued Monday does not affect Germantown retailers. Millions of rotten eggs linked to salmonella have sickened hundreds of people nationwide. Now Wright County Egg, the Iowa company associated with the contamination, has increased its voluntary recall to 380 million eggs adding to the recall announced last week.
A manager at the Kroger at Poplar & Exeter in Germantown confirms no recalled eggs were sold at their store. The dairy manager says their eggs come from Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. Managers at Schnucks on Farmington and the Walgreens at Farmington & Germantown Parkway also say they do not contract with the Iowa company that produced the contaminated eggs.
