* As of August 23, 2010, this story is still developing. 

FYI:  So far, 500,000,000 eggs have recalled.   This is 2% of all eggs produced in the US annually.

Story on nationwide egg recall is still developing. You may own tainted eggs and maybe they don’t know about it.  I hope, by now, you have small amount of older eggs left that you can simply start with a new batch and forget about everything.

I eat 4 Costco eggs every day (4 whites, 2 yolks). I have never stopped eating Costco eggs since Salmonella outbreak.  I still have about a dozen older eggs and I intend to eat them all.

My eggs are packaged from Norco Ranch (Ca).  At first, I thought Norco Ranch eggs are safe.  Later, I learned that Norco eggs were pulled from the market as well (Related News).  Some reported getting sick after eating Norco Ranch bought from Costco.

So, at this point, I don’t know what to say about this topic.  Some reports are not confirmed. Just be careful.   Keep up with the news and use common sense.  When it doubt, trash your eggs and start fresh.

Take care everyone.
