Egg recall: What's in your fridge? (istockphoto)

(CBS/AP) They're back. Just when you thought you had seen the last of tainted eggs, turns out food safety regulators are worried about a whole new batch.

Cal-Maine Foods Inc., the nation's biggest egg seller, is recalling 288,000 eggs that they distributed around the country after salmonella was detected at the Ohio farm they purchased them from.

That farm, Ohio Fresh Eggs, has received financing from Jack DeCoster, the owner of Wright County Egg, which caused the massive recall earlier this year.

The new eggs, according to Cal-Maine, have so far been shipped to food wholesalers and retailers in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. They were packaged in early October, but the company claims they were only notified of the salmonella problem on Nov. 5.

So far, there are no reported illnesses.


WHAT TO DO

The full list of recalled products is below. If you have purchased recalled eggs, do not eat them. Cal-Maine says you should return them to the store for a full refund. If you want to call the company, here's how. Dial 1-866-276-6299 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CDT.

WHAT IS SALMONELLA

Salmonella is a bacterial infection that attacks the intestines. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps usually within 12 to 72 hours of consuming contaminated food or water. The disease usually runs its course within a week, but in rare cases it can spread to other parts of the body and be life threatening. Typical treatment involves replacing fluids and electrolytes lost to diarrhea. Tougher cases may require antibiotics. In either case, see a doctor.
