The egg recall farms are under intense scrutiny of the FDA.Â The egg recall farms were discovered to have â€œunsanitary conditionsâ€ after a visit from the regulatory body.Â The results of the investigation are disturbing.Â At the Wright County Egg farm in Galt, Iowa, several nasty things were discovered.
First, there were maggots. I donâ€™t know about you, but that makes my stomach churn.Â Second, there were rodents and rodent feces present in the henhouses. Thatâ€™s enough to make me eat eggbeaters for the rest of my life right there!
Third, there were flies â€œtoo numerous to countâ€ and once again the maggots were â€œtoo numerous to countâ€ as well.
Granted Wright County Egg wasnâ€™t in the business of selling to the general public, but still there were many food safety violations made by the farm. Itâ€™s gross.
Over half a billion eggs have been recalled.Â Consumers are advised to select pasteurized eggs to avoid salmonella contamination.Â In addition, cooking eggs thoroughly SHOULD kill off the salmonella bacteriaâ€¦but why take the chances?
