Typically a staple food in many Americans’ diets, eggs have come under fire after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pointed to two Iowa-based producers as the root of a nationwide salmonella outbreak. On Aug. 18, Wright County Eggs recalled products from all five of its farms and 380 million eggs. Recently, Hillandale Farms was also cited in the outbreak and has recalled 170 million eggs.

Thousands of Americans have reportedly become ill after consuming eggs from these companies and some are filing lawsuits, the Atlanta Business Journal said.
