    I think it says more about the working conditions on a big poultry farm. I'm sure it's NOT transmitted to and from the birds, but the sanitation and ventilation for the HUMANS working there are probably horrid.

    Yes, ThunderStruck I AM glad I raise my own chickens. Just one more reason not to support the egg industry!
