The price of eggs is going to go WAY up

An egg company based in Indiana is recalling more than 200 million eggs due to salmonella contamination. 22 people have been sickened so far. That is a massive number of eggs, and will surely drive up the cost, if you can find eggs at all.

Get some chickens and you'll have eggs every day.

I think one of the problems is that they wash the eggs in the US before they can be sold. Washing removes the protective layer and allows pathogens to enter through the shell. That's not allowed in the EU.

No yolk OP. My wife and I raise organic chickens, and have so many eggs we have to sell them to neighbors and friends. Never washed or refrigerated and no salmonella. This only happens because they wash the protective layer off the egg in the big farms, allowing all kinds of bacteria through.

No question RLK, I can eat raw eggs here, I wouldn't dare in the US.

Well, Finland also has a very strict salmonella control program


Quote:The control programme is being implemented in its most extensive form in the production chain of poultry, where the salmonella situation has been kept excellently under control also in international comparison. The annual incidence of salmonella in flocks that produce consumption eggs has remained under 0.2%. No salmonella has been found in egg-type chicken breeder flocks, and in broiler and turkey breeder flocks the occurrence of salmonella has been max. 0.5%.

I live far enough out to keep chickens, but there's a farmer down the road where I buy fresh brown organic eggs, unwashed and never refrigerated. They are so fresh it's a PITA to peel them hard boiled.
