The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday those infected with salmonella had reported feeling ill between November 16, 2017 and April 14. Eleven people have been hospitalized due to the outbreak.

The CDC said the outbreak impacted 11 states, including 8 in NY, 5 in North Carolina, 8 in Virginia, 6 in Pennsylvania, 3 in SC and 1 case in Colorado, West Virginia, and New Jersey. NY and Virginia have clocked the most number of cases, tallying eight each. The farm has recalled more than 207 million eggs.

Other affected brand names include Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms, and Sunups.
