More than 200 million eggs are being recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.

Rose Acre Farms issued the voluntary recall in nine states for multiple brands including Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Sunshine Farms and Great Value.

The eggs were sold to restaurants and retail stores.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a statement the eggs are connected to at least 22 cases of salmonella infection. The FDA suggests people who bought these brands should throw the eggs away or return them to stores.

The states possibly affected are Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.
