Thirty-five people have been sickened by a salmonella outbreak linked to the recall of almost 207 million eggs, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in an update this week.

Since the initial outbreak announcement on April 16, public health officials have reported a dozen more cases of Salmonella infection to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 450 people were sickened by three different salmonella outbreaks in 1990, all of which were tied to Rose Acre Farms, according to the Post.

A report from Food Safety News provided more information on the confirmed salmonella cases, noting that the people sickened by the tainted eggs ranged from 1 to 90 years old, with a median age of 65.

The recall, which was issued in mid-April, impacted more than 206 million eggs that had been distributed all across the United States.

The CDC announced last week that it "continues to recommend consumers, restaurants, and retailers should not eat, serve, or sell recalled eggs produced by Rose Acre Farms' Hyde County farm". The eggs were sold under various brand names, including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak and Crystal Farms.

"We vow to do better in the future". Authorities said the DeCosters' company, Quality Egg, sold eggs contaminated with Salmonella enteriditis to several states and bribed an inspector for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in an attempt to sell eggs that were "red tagged" for failing to meet minimum industry standards.

There are now 35 reported cases of Salmonella, across nine states.

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

For a full list of recalled brands, consumers are urged to check the Food and Drug Administration's website. One person died, according to the CDC.
