Egg Recall Informative - Eggs Being Recalled

Review by 54118 on 2010-08-19
Massive egg recall has consumers scrambling to check their pantries for eggs that might be contaminated with salmonella.

The recall involves 228 million eggs produced in Galt, Iowa by Wright County Egg, and distributed to wholesalers and food service companies nationwide.

The recall affects eggs sold under the following brands: Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms, and Kemps.

If you have suspect eggs, check the dates and codes stamped on the end of the carton.

The plant numbers affected are P-1026, P-1413, and P-1946. The dates (recorded in the "Julian format") range from 136 to 225, according to a statement by the Egg Safety Center. For example, eggs in a carton marked with the number P-1026 137 should not be eaten.

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

"This recall is of shell eggs only. Other egg products produced by Wright County Eggs are not affected," the company said in a statement.

Minnesota health officials say seven salmonella cases in two restaurant outbreaks have been linked to Wright County Egg in May and July.

One more reason why I don't eat eggs.
Posted by MRM on 2010-08-19:
JC, what are the other reasons not to eat eggs? Me, myself, and I love to eat scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, and sunny side up with no ill effects.

Did someone not pass animal anatomy?

Y, I don't drink milk either, and that is one of the reasons, lol! I've always liked honey, but now that you said vomit, I will be having second thoughts.

Is animal anatomy a class?

Naughty girl! Next time you "Do The Puyallup", check out the chicken barn, and come back here and tell us again where eggs come from. And pay attention this time, there may be a quiz later. Or an oral eggzam.

Salmonella is usually only found on the outside of the egg, not the inside, (something like 1 in .005% inside), so I think this is all a lot of ado about nothing.

When did I say I CARED that honey is bee vomit or milk is from cow boobs? I DON'T, I was only teasing another member granny.

1. Eggs come from chicken butt
2. Honey is bee vomit
3. Milk comes from cow boobs
4. Ham is pig butt
5. Rump roast is well from the cow rump
6. Vegetables are fertilized with poop
7. Fish live, eat and drink in their own toilet.

well kinda. about the butt i mean.

it uses the same exit hole, but the canal the egg comes out of actually pushes out a little with the egg itself, so it kinda forms a lip around the exit and blocks off the anal portion of the chicken.

that way, right from the chicken's butt the egg is sterile - well as sterile as the chicken's canal that is.

though keep in mind, chickens then walk on their own feces and then sit on the egg, so it doesn't stay sterile for long

Pepper, you just sealed the deal for me. Thanks for the animal anatomy lesson...I definitely do not remember learning that in school.
Posted by PepperElf on 2010-08-19:
