New Mexico has so far avoided the largest egg recall in American history.
There have been more than 2,500 reports of illness related to salmonella poisoning and in the last week alone, nearly half a billion eggs have been recalled.
That’s about two eggs for every person in the country, or nearly $60 million dollars worth.
The egg contamination plagues 17 states throughout the nation, but Smith’s Food and Drug Centers are not affected, said corporate spokesperson Marsha Gilford.
Smith’s has stores in Los Alamos and White Rock.
