CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Eggs are being recalled after a national outbreak of salmonella.

The illness has sickened hundreds of people since May and appears to be ongoing.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has traced the outbreak to in-shell eggs from an Iowa company.

It's believed the total number of eggs recalled is 228 million.

The recalled eggs were sold under the brand names:
Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps and they were distributed nationwide.

The recall affects eggs in cartons ranging from six to 18 eggs and are marked with plant numbers P-1026, P-1413 and P-1946.

The eggs should be returned for a refund and not consumed.
