This recall is the largest since 2010 when a salmonella outbreak was linked to an Iowa egg farm that infected more than 1,500 people.
Officials confirmed that the affected farm - Rose Acre Farms, which describes itself as the second-largest egg producer in the USA - has paused its egg distribution.
In an announcement posted to its website on Friday, the FDA reported that Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Indiana, recalled the eggs distributed from the farm in Hyde County, North Carolina.
According to the federal Food and Drug Administration, eggs from the affected farm were distributed in nine states, including Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.
Chickens can pass the bacteria to eggs because the eggs leave hens through the same passageway as feces.
"Consumers with these eggs shouldn't eat them", FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said Sunday in a Twitter message.
