Egg Recall 2010 Brands?

What brands are part of the egg recall 2010?
Health investigators are reporting hundreds of salmonella infections caused by bad eggs since May, prompting an initial recall of 228 million eggs last week. The number increased this week to 380 million across Colorado, California, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin.

The feds have linked the ongoing outbreak to Wright County Egg, an Iowa-based company that has sold potentially contaminated shell eggs to retailers and distributors in several states.

The outbreak appears to be ongoing, it began several weeks before the July introduction of new federal safety rules intended to reduce the risk of salmonella in eggs.
Does anyone know the list of brands affected in this recall?

Eggs recalled are packaged under the following brand names: Albertsons, Farm Fresh, James Farms, Glenview, Mountain Dairy, Ralphs, Boomsma, Lund, Kemps and Pacific Coast. Eggs are packed in varying sizes of cartons (6-egg cartons, dozen egg cartons, 18-egg cartons, and loose eggs for institutional use and repackaging) with Julian dates, a three-digit number ranging from 136 to 229, and plant numbers 1720 and 1942.

The responsible is Wright County Egg, one of the largest egg producers in the country. The company is now having to recall at least 228 million eggs.

Consumers who have suspicious eggs can get a refund if they return them in their original carton to the store where they were bought.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated that the number of people sickened as a result of the salmonella outbreak could be in the thousands. During June and July, about 200 cases of the salmonella strain were reported weekly, four times normal levels.
