CHICAGO (AP) - A food distributor says the company at the center of a massive egg recall used unauthorized cartons to package and sell eggs under its brand name without its knowledge.

Dutch Farms says it is taking legal action against Wright County Eggs. Dutch Farm eggs and several other brands are being recalled for possible salmonella contamination.

An estimated 380 million eggs are being recalled in a case suspected to have caused hundreds of illnesses.

The Dutch Farms-labeled eggs were distributed to Walgreens stores in Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, South Dakota and Arkansas.

Walgreen Co. says it has pulled the eggs. Wright County Eggs could not be immediately reached for comment.

Eggs with plant numbers P1026, P1413 and P1946 on the package can be returned to stores.
