The Department of Agriculture says it's traced the contaminated eggs to the Larry Schultz Organic Farm in Owatonna where tests confirmed the presence of salmonella. Farm owners are cooperating with the investigation and have issued a voluntary recall of the eggs.

Health officials say six people in the Twin Cities area, both children and adults, got sick between Aug. 12 and Sept. 24. Three people were hospitalized, but have since recovered.

Eggs included in the recall have been distributed to restaurants, grocery stores, food wholesalers and food service companies in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan under the brand names of Lunds & Byerlys Organic, Kowalski's Organic and Larry Schultz Organic Farm.
