The eggs were produced by Wright County Egg in Galt, Iowa, and sold around the country under 143 different brands, and are packed in boxes of six, 12 and 18 eggs.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it had been investigating since late June. It found almost four times the usual rate of salmonella-related illness being reported, an FDA statement said. Salmonella can cause intestinal infections and is transmitted by foods contaminated by animal fecal matter.
Has to be a total accident.
I can’t think of a single reason anyone anywhere would want to mess around with the food supply of The United States.
Over 200,000,000 eggs.
Logistics: Inform ; Confirm ; Pull Stock ; Confirm ; Destroy (isolated) ; Confirm ; Dispose (isolated) ; Confirm ; Replace.
All in triple-triplicate on newly issued government documents from The Office Of Egg Purity And Regulatory conformity, copies to every alphabet soup agency under the sun, including NASA, NOAA and ACORN,
…….and according to teh gubmint, it doesn’t cost anything, because the private sector – companies like Wright County Eggs, Inc., are just a bunch of greedy evil Capitalists using a vacuum to suck money from people’s pockets.
But wait…… That was yesterday.
Today there’s more…… Over double more.
Recall expands to more than half a billion eggs.
Half a billion eggs have been recalled in the nationwide investigation of a salmonella outbreak that has already sickened more than 1,000 people.
Iowa’s Hillsdale Farms said Friday it was recalling more than 170 million eggs after laboratory tests confirmed salmonella. The company did not say if it is connected to Wright County Egg, another Iowa farm that recalled 380 million eggs earlier this week.
Wright County Egg actually recalled almost 400,000,000 eggs, not the 200,000,000 initially reported.
Somethin’ ’tain’t right in Hooterville.
I wouldn’t put it past anyone on this planet who doesn’t like America to kick it into the mix at the current time – even the folks in charge here – ESPECIALLY the folks in charge here.
Things are coming to a real head in The Middle East ; Over this side of the pond, I’ll paraphrase Felix Unger: ‘Mosquar, Mosquar, Mosquar’; Mexico is right now coming apart in the Monterrey area affecting our nation in a dire way ; Primaries all over the place with some highly questionable candidates ; 8/28 at The Lincoln Memorial ; 9/12 rallies all over the nation ; November elections.
Now, one of the main ingredients in the nation’s food supply and pharmaceutical production gets hit out of the blue by a sledgehammer.
You have no idea how much I’m praying that I’m wrong that this may be deliberate.
