Eggs Salmonella

                                   Eggs

I haven't posted on this blog for several months mainly due toi time constraints. However, the egg recall really got my attention. There are now 500 BILLION eggs from Iowa that have been recalled by the USDA based on warnings from the FDA. In my day job I am a physician and while I am not an infectious disease specialist I do know that salmonella in eggs is a result of the closeness of the hens in the "egg factories". locally grown eggs simply do not have these issues. Salmonella presents as a systemic illness with fever, malaise,and diarrhea sometimes bloody. In the young, old, and comprimised patient population this illness can be life threateniing.
