(CBS) Now that the already massive egg recall has grown from 228 million to 380 million eggs due to the largest salmonella scare we've seen in years, consumers are wondering which eggs are safe.

Three new brands have been added to the long list of eggs to check for possible contamination:

James Farms
Pacific Coast

Below you'll find the complete list of eggs which may be infected with salmonella. They are all produced in Galt, Iowa by Wright County Egg, but they are sold in grocery stories under many different brands.

But even as you check your fridge, think about what you order in restaurants.

Raw egg can be found in sauces and condiments, including Hollandaise sauce and Caesar salad dressing, as well as eggnog, milkshakes and smoothies.

Raw egg can also lurk in homemade mayo and icecream, according to WebMD.

Now check your fridge. Here's a full list of brands, all produced by Wright Country Egg, to examine.


Dutch Farms
Farm Fresh
Mountain Dairy
James Farms
Pacific Coast

If you have a suspect brand, check the dates and codes stamped on the end of the carton.

The plant numbers affected have broadened. They used to be  P-1026, P-1413, and P-1946. Now they include P-1720 and P-1942.

The three digit code that follows the plant number were originally said to range from 136 to 225, according to a statement by the Egg Safety Center. Now you must look for codes that range from 136 to 229.

For example, eggs in a carton marked with the number P-1026 227 should not be eaten.

Consumers who have suspicious eggs can get a refund if they return them in their original carton to the store where they were bought.

Here's the official company release on the FDA website.
