    Just got the magazine today and I saw an article about someone is questioning about storage of eggs......makes me question the validity of this editor or writer that responded back.

    Of course, we are the only one in the whole wide world that refigerate our eggs and it is perfectly safe to eat eggs from nest to counter, rather than in refigerator. See our English cousins and Salmonella is not common there!

    Wish the writer would read up more on it instead of being taught in a book or ignorant school marm!

    What do you all think of the article????????????

    I had a subscription for a few years.
    Just like any magazine, I agree and disagree with several things. But I do like the magazine as a whole.
    They brought me back to several recipes and other things from "back home" (im from the south).

    The editor probably knows NOTHING about eggs or chickens and his(her) due dillegence is dependance on the research staff who probably got the information from a reader. Most of the time they will err on the side of health dept regulations on "hazardus" foods regardless where it comes from.
    If they say it's OK to keep eggs on the counter and one fool gets sick, they can be sued.
