While more than 1,000 people have suffered illnesses from the nationwide recall of tainted eggs, local grocers said Monday that the affected eggs have not been shipped to the Cowboy Capital.
"None of our eggs were recalled," Kurt Glaspy, HEB unit director, said.
Down the street, Wal-Mart SuperCenter Assistant Manager Sylvia Berna, said eggs at their location are also safe.
"Our eggs are a different brand (than the ones recalled)," Berna said Monday.
The recalled eggs were supplied by two Iowa farms, Hillandale Farms and Wright County Egg, and part of a salmonella outbreak.
An FDA spokeswoman told the Associated Press last week that the two recalls, which applies to eggs sold between April and August, were related and that the same strain of salmonella was detected in eggs from both farms.
The distributed eggs were under the brand names of Hillandale Farms, Sunny Farms, Sunny Meadow, Wholesome Farms and West Creek, the Associated Press said.
The eggs were distributed to grocers in 14 states including Arkansas, California, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin.
