(CNN) – A salmonella outbreak that led to the massive recall of 207 million eggs has worsened — with 35 people reported ill in several states , federal health officials said. The number of illnesses is a dozen more since the initial recall notice was issued last month.

According to the Post, Rose Acre Farms has come under scrutiny in the past for salmonella contamination. In 1990, the egg producer was linked to three separate salmonella outbreaks that sickened hundreds of people, the paper reported.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can be found on the inside of contaminated eggs and on eggshells, too. It can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps in sickened individuals; for older adults, infants and people with weakened immune systems, salmonella can cause more serious, even life-threatening, complications. 

The CDC has published a list of recommendations aimed at helping consumers reduce their risk of contracting foodborne illnesses, such as salmonella, from eggs. The recommendations include not eating raw or undercooked eggs and keeping eggs refrigerated at all times.
