Egg eaters have two new brand names to search for in their refrigerators Thursday because of the nationwide salmonella scare sparked by egg recalls.

Wright County Egg, the company responsible for 380 million of the 550 million recalled eggs, said in a press release Wednesday night that it had confirmed cases of Salmonella enteritidis illnesses related to shell eggs bearing the Cardenas Market brand and Cardenas Market was beginning a voluntary recall.

The statement said affected eggs were distributed to Cardenas Market stores in California and Nevada, packaged in 60-egg cases over-wrapped with plastic. Although the Cardenas Market label wasn't named in Wright County's original August 13 recall announcement, Cardenas was immediately notified at the time of the original recall, and product in distribution or in stores has been quarantined, returned or destroyed, Wright County said.
