Friendly Reminder: Check Your Eggs

Thursday, August 19, 2010 0 Comments

I saw this on the KTVU yesterday morning while I was getting ready for work and wanted to be sure to pass along. The bacon is still cool last I heard if we don't run out of it (GOD the humanity).

After an uptick in salmonella infections, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Food and Drug Administration traced the source and determined it was most likely eggs from Wright County Egg. The company says it is working to determine how the shell eggs are being contaminated.

The new recall covers eggs branded as Albertsons, Farm Fresh, James Farms, Glenview, Mountain Dairy, Ralphs, Boomsma, Lund, Kemps and Pacific Coast and are marked with a three-digit code ranging from 136 to 229 and plant numbers 1720 and 1942, the company said.

The earlier recall covered the Lucerne, Albertsons, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemps brands and are marked with a three-digit code ranging from 136 to 225 and plant numbers 1026, 1413 and 1946.

The plant number beings with "P - " and is followed by the three-digit code.

Both recalls affect eggs packed in several different sized cartons, from a half-dozen to 18-eggs. Only shell eggs are affected by the recall, the company said.
The recall affects some 380 million eggs, a dozen of which may be in your fridge (especially if you are in the Bay Area and shop at Safeway) so check your cartons. Eww.

See? I am helpful, don't listen to what Bernanke tells you!
