The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation announced Friday that it has found no eggs sold in Alaska that are linked to the Wright County Egg national recall for possible Salmonella contamination.
An earlier announcement that associated Olympia Valley eggs with the recall was incorrect. DEC issued a press release that stated the error stemmed from information by a retail store that mistakenly provided DEC with false information about eggs it had sold.
According to the release, DEC has contacted major statewide distributors and found none carrying the affected eggs. It stated that DEC will continue its search and if such products are found, DEC will verify that the stores would stop selling them immediately.
