Yep, about 248 MILLION eggs were recalled for sallmonella, with over 250 people in Ca alone sickened. How does that happen??? How does the germ get into the egg and make people sick? It was not a Ca based egg factory, and the eggs were dated from MAY to August. I was grossed out to think people are buying eggs laid in MAY!! How sad. Who wants to eat 3 month old eggs? Makes me very glad I have my own 'egg factory'! I know there are outside eggs in some of the food I buy and consume, but I am still glad to have a source right here at home I dont have to worry about as much. I feel so bad for those folks who got sick. Yet another reason for all bans on backyard hens to be lifted, IMO. ETA- went to Pineapplemama's link- she has better info!!
