Hillandale Farms of Iowa said it was recalling eggs from its two plants in Iowa, distributed under the brand names Hillandale Farms, Sunny Farms and Sunny Meadow. Eggs produced by Hillandale outside of Iowa were unaffected by the recall.

The company said the recalled eggs were sold in Arkansas, California, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin.

This is in addition to 380,000,000 eggs recalled earlier this week by Wright County Egg. CDC has linked over 1,200 illnesses to one or both of these recalls.
