This was reported by Reuters today: FDA ties chicken feed to salmonella in egg recall WASHINGTON | Thu Aug 26, 2010 3:02pm EDT Aug 26 (Reuters) - Feed was the likely cause of the salmonella outbreak at two Iowa producers that sparked a recall of more than a half billion eggs, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Thursday. The egg recalls came weeks after a new FDA rule took effect requiring large-scale producers to practice better safety and to test in the poultry house for salmonella bacteria. CNN reports: (CNN) -- Feed given to hens -- used at both Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms -- is the likely source of contamination that led to a nationwide salmonella outbreak, federal officials said Thursday. The feed and some feed ingredients are believed to have been contaminated and are the source of the salmonella, U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials said in a conference call. It's possible the feed became contaminated after it went through heat treatment that was sufficient to kill salmonella, officials said My questions are, when after the heat process was the feed contaminated, (at the feed mill, or at the farms) and which feed is it? Am I possibly buying contaminated feed? I can find no answers at all online. Does anyone know?
