More than 200 million eggs have been recalled from stores and restaurants across nine states, the Associated Press reported Sunday.

The eggs from a Rose Acre Farms facility in Hyde County, North Carolina, may be contaminated with a form of salmonella, which can cause serious infection.

The notice said Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms was voluntarily recalling the eggs "through an abundance of caution".

The other states with affected eggs are Colorado, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

Hens infected with salmonella can lay contaminated eggs.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a notice about the recall Friday, warning consumers that 22 illnesses have been reported in states along the east coast of the USA because of the eggs.

The recalled eggs will have a date range between 011 and 102 printed on the carton, according to the FDA.

Raw eggs can contain salmonella so handle them carefully.

An investigation by the federal agency led to an inspection of the farm, which is located in Hyde County, N.C., and produces 2.3 million eggs a day from 3 million hens.

Contamination can also take place if people don't wash their hands thoroughly after using the toilet or changing a diaper.

The FDA posted a full recall list with product numbers on its website. The more severe illnesses may include arterial infections, infected aneurysms, endocarditis, and arthritis.
