Wright County Egg Iowa?

Egg producer Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa is expanding its voluntary recall of specific shell eggs produced by their farms because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella. An estimated 380 million eggs are affected. Hundreds of people have already been sickened in four states, no deaths have been reported.

A total of 380 million eggs have been recalled since last week because of concerns they may be tainted with the potentially deadly salmonella bacteria.

Hundreds of people have become sick from eating tainted eggs and one lawsuit has already been filed against the egg supplier, the Wright County Egg Farm in Galt, Iowa.

What is this company going to do about the egg recall? Are they going to be responsible of all the people that is getting sick everyday?

All the eggs have been cleared off shelves after Wright County Egg issued the voluntary recall.

According to a report in today’s New York Times, Wright Country Egg’s owner Jack DeCoster has had a series of run-ins with government regulators over unsanitary and unsafe working conditions at the company’s farms, environmental violations, harassment of workers, and the hiring of illegal immigrants.

Wright County Egg is fully cooperating with FDA's investigation by undertaking this voluntary recall. The company said in a statement, "our primary concern is keeping salmonella out of the food supply and away from consumers."

The current epidemic is linked to intact and disinfected grade A eggs. Salmonella enteritidis silently infects the ovaries of seemingly healthy hens and contaminates the eggs before the shells form.

The eggs should be returned for a refund.
