Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) - More than 380-million eggs have been recalled in the largest salmonella scare in years.

The Food and Drug Administration says the eggs have yet to reach New York or Pennsylvania.

However, investigations into suspect illness are expanding across the country.

Action News reached out to many local grocery stores.

The following have confirmed they do not sell brands that use Wright County eggs from Iowa: Weis Markets, Wegman's, Target Stores, Aldi Stores, Maine's Paper and Food Supply.

Three of Wal-Mart's egg suppliers, Sparboe Farms, Dean Foods and Hillandale Farms, announced recalls of eggs. Those were promptly pulled from the stores' shelves.

Sam's Club, a division of Wal-Mart, was not impacted by the recall.

All consumers are being urged to check their egg cartons for these plant numbers that are being recalled: P-1026, P-1413, P-1720, P-1942, P-1946.

Immediately following that plant number is the three-digit code. Those affected are between 136 to 229.

Brands included in the recall are: Albertsons, Boomsma's, Dutch Farms, Farm Fresh, Glenview, Hillandale, James Farms, Kemps, Lucerne, Lund, Mountain Dairy, Pacific Coast, Ralph's, Shoreland, Sunshine, and Trafficanda.

The FDA says an Iowa-based company is distributing the bad eggs.

Restaurant-goers should also be mindful of what they're ordering.

Raw egg can be found in many sauces and condiments.
