Approximately 2.67 million eggs throughout the Czech Republic from a Polish supplier are being recalled due to the threat of salmonella.

Around 150 people throughout the European Union have affected by a salmonella outbreak since July 2015. Only recently has the source been traced back to the Polish supplier.

It’s estimated that as many as 10 countries in Europe received eggs that may contain salmonella. Last week, Croatia withdrew the eggs from their market, and Poland prohibited sale from the supplier.  

Yesterday, the Czech State Veterinary Administration ordered an immediate recall, reports iDnes.cz.

Locally, affected eggs – estimated at 2.67 million – may have been sold at Tesco, Albert, and Kaufland supermarkets.

Do you have affected eggs at home? Your eggs may be subject to the recall if they match the following data: 

Supplier: Fermy Drobiu Woźniak Sp. z o.o.
Batch number: PL 30221304 and PL 30221321
Expiration date: 22.10, 25.10, 31.10, 3.11, 4.11, 5.11, 6.11, 7.11, 8.11, 10.11, 13.11, 14.11, 15.11

Affected eggs can be returned for a refund at any Kaufland market, according to spokesperson Michael Šperl. Presumably, other supermarkets will also accept a return.

63% of all salmonella cases in humans are traced back to eggs and egg products.
