The eggs were distributed from Rose Acre Farms in Hyde County and have reached consumers in nine different states, including North Carolina, Florida, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia, the FDA said. They were sold loose to restaurants, of which one was Waffle House.
