    Thank goodness we haven't bought ANY eggs since our birds began laying! [​IMG] Food independence (I can't believe I'm about to use an internete term) FTW!

    Remember the last one though... it wasn't until AFTER people got sick that the FDA finally got around to inspecting the place... the 8' tall pile of manure really capped it for me... really you didn't notice that at all? [​IMG]

    As long as no one is getting sick they don't inspect the big boys... not at all the same thing as small farms... those can go 30+ years with not a single person EVER getting sick and they'll swarm in in SWAT gear and tear you apart... just because they can.

    frankly surprised it doesn't happen more often and with more of our food. It's strictly big biz making a buck as cheaply as possible.
