The U.S. Food and Drugs administration has released a statement saying a salmonella outbreak has spread in many states and has made more than a thousand people sick.

After Wright County Egg, another farm in Iowa has recalled 170 millions eggs, bringing the recalled amount to 550 million. The Statement also says more than 2-thousand suspected cases have been reported across the country. Only half of them have been confirmed. No deaths have been reported so far.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says it has used advanced molecular tests to help identify cases from the outbreak. It says a trace-track by state and federal officials has found eggs from Wright County Egg factored in salmonella cases in California, Colorado and Minnesota.

Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain and sometimes more serious illness or even death.
