Salmonella Eggs Recall List?

I'm looking for the list of eggs' brands that are being recalled right now.
A salmonella outbreak has spurred a massive egg recall that has been expanded to affect several states. Salmonella is most often contracted by eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry, and eggs.

The Food and Drug Administration, which investigates food contamination, said the CDC received reports of approximately 200 salmonella cases every week during late June and early July. Normally, the CDC has received an average of some 50 reports of salmonella illness each week for the past five years. Many states have also reported increases of this pattern since May 2010.

The Associated Press initially reported that 228 million eggs were recalled. The recall has since expanded to 380 million eggs and nine additional states: Arkansas, Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.
If you know what products are in the list, please let me know.

Salmonella has a long been a problem with eggs. New government regulations that went into effect on July 9th are intended to reduce salmonella contamination and could prevent as many as 79,000 illnesses and 30 deaths each year related to the consumption of tainted eggs. The bacteria often reside inside the shell of the egg and is transferred by egg-laying hens.

Anyone who thinks they may have some of the recalled eggs may return them to the store where they were purchased for a refund.
Dates and codes can be found stamped on the end of the egg carton or printed on the case label.

The outbreak has been tracked to in-shell eggs from Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa, which launched the recall. Its eggs were distributed to wholesalers and food service companies nationwide under multiple brand names: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps.

The most common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight hours to 72 hours of eating a contaminated product. It can be life-threatening, especially to those with weakened immune systems.
