WASHINGTON — A second Iowa farm is recalling eggs due to salmonella poisoning. The FDA says the recall is related to an ongoing investigation of an outbreak that has sickened more than 1,000 people.

Iowa’s Hillandale Farms said Friday that it was recalling its eggs after laboratory tests confirmed illnesses associated with them. The company did not say how many eggs were being recalled or if it is connected to Wright County Egg, the Iowa farm that recalled 380 million eggs earlier this week.

An FDA spokeswoman said the two recalls were related. The strain of salmonella poisoning is the same strain linked to Wright County Egg.

Eggs were distributed under the brand names Hillandale Farms, Sunny Farms, Sunny Meadow, Wholesome Farms and West Creek.
