Even MORE Eggs Recalled!

submitted on November 8, 2010 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
Cal-Maine Foods, the largest producer and distributor of fresh shell eggs in the United States, has voluntarily recalled 288,000 eggs. The contaminated eggs were not produced from Cal-Maine flocks. A positive test for Salmonella was found at one of their suppliers, Ohio Fresh Eggs.

The Salmonella was found last month in a routine Food & Drug Administration (FDA) test. Cal-Maine purchased approximately 24,000 dozen unprocessed eggs from Ohio Fresh, which were processed and re-packaged by the Cal-Maine's Green Forest, Arkansas, facility between October 9 and 12, 2010, but Cal-Maine was only notified on November 5th.

The eggs had been sent to stores and wholesalers in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas, Cal-Maine said in a statement. No illnesses have been reported yet, the company said.

Fox News has confirmed that the owner of the facility in Iowa that was the subject of a previous recall in August 2010 is also linked to Ohio Fresh Eggs, and he has a history of violations in his food and farm operations. http://www.nydailynews.com/new.....tions.html

    You know all these recalls suck. And not only do they affect us by not being able to buy the product until the recall is lifted but it effects the end price we pay for our goods. When there is a short supply of something prices go up.

    I don't understand how this guy is still in the egg-producing business, he's been cited so many times for violations and contamination. Eeek

    I'm feeling a sense of deja vu here. Seems like we had this conversation on the last egg recall or something else.

      When I said I had a sense of deja vu it was about this comment you made:

      I said almost the same thing on another recall but don't remember which one....
