6 ill from Organic Eggs – What’s in your kitchen

Posted on October 24, 2011 by


The FDA has issued a consumer warning for a multi-state organic egg recall. The eggs contain Salmonella.

Here is what the warning has said, in part, “To prevent illness, it is important for consumers to cook eggs thoroughly before eating in order to destroy any Salmonella or other bacteria. Consumers who believe they may have purchased these shell eggs should not eat them but should return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.”

Should a consumer assume that Organic eggs or any Organic product is safer? Manufacturers would like consumers to buy onto the Organic is better theory. Strictly on a recall basis, Salmonella doesn’t discriminate. There is no way of knowing that your Organic product may contain Salmonella, Listeria, E.Coli or any other nasty organism that can cause disease or death.
