Egg Recall

Not a huge recall, as they say less than 1% of eggs.

This is one good reason why all British eggs are date stamped on the day of laying. Date stamping assures the buyer the eggs are totally fresh.

Linux, this is not an issue of freshness. It's one of contamination. A contaminated egg is contaminated in the hen, it's not something that happens after laying with age.

My friend in the next town had some of the offending eggs in her refrigerator. She took a new prescription med before breakfast three days ago, and then scrambled eggs, not knowing. That afternoon she vomited, and thought it was the medication. She's fine now but Geeze, it's getting dangerous to eat most anything. I'm sure glad she wasn't a whole lot sicker!! GRRRRRRR

It may have been her medication. Salmonella takes three days to incubate in your system and if the eggs were fully cooked as they would be in an omelet, they wouldn't make her sick.

Actually, for clarification, the typical Salmonella food poisoning shows up in 12-24 hours. While there are different strains and different conditions(for example the amount ingested) that will change that timing, 3 days I believe, would be the very outside range.

I based my 3 day time period on the ABC medical expert's statement on Wednesday's Evening News.

3 days isn't incorrect, it is just the outside of the range range. Most occur from 12-24 hours.
