Where are those eggs from?

Watch out for the smell of rotten eggs on garbage day.
People are tossing their cartons in the can because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has ordered the recall of 380 million eggs due to possible salmonella contamination.
Tennessee is one of the states where health officials are investigating salmonella poisoning, but the eggs were shipped nationwide.
The FDA has released a list of the brand names involved. One of the companies on that list, Dutch Farms, issued a statement Wednesday saying that eggs were packaged in its cartons at an Iowa farm without its authorization and sent to Walgreens in seven states, including Arkansas.
The FDA has issued guidance about the recall. Read the information at:

The timing of the recall might make a just-released report from the
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention better reading. That report provides a broad overview of food poisoning incidents during 2007. Nearly 1,100 outbreaks occurred that year.
