    An outbreak of salmonella that brought the recall of more than 200 million eggs last month has sickened 12 more people, federal health officials announced on Friday, bringing the total to 35. 

    Eleven people were hospitalized. No deaths were connected to the outbreak.

    The eggs were produced by Rose Acre Farms in Indiana and sold in stores and restaurants in nine states: Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. They were sold under brand names including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms, and Sunups.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to recommend that consumers don't eat any of the recalled eggs, which can be identified with Julian date range 011 through 102 printed on either the side portion or the principal side of the carton or package. A full list of lot codes can be found on the FDA's site. A total of 206,749,248 were affected.
