Me too, but since we'd already eaten some and I'm still sitting here I assumed we were okay. I imagine it would be scary if you'd just fed your kids and then realized they had been recalled.... Shocked

What is really funny, I ate 2 yesterday morning, and I have had cramps and many visits to the bathroom today. But 2 friends of mine had the same thing yesterday, and they said they have not eaten any eggs. However, NC is not one of the states listed. My carton said they are from Morning Fresh Farms, but does not say where these farms are located.

You can also call the phone number, if there is one, on the carton just to really make sure.

OMG, I hope she wants them scrambled. I don't do fried eggs well. I usually burst the yolks, and my family likes the yolks running, but the whites well done.

I did have them as scrambled, but could only find an emoticon with a fried egg, so I changed it to fried eggs.
