Localvores Eat Safer
I just read an interesting article in the magazine Hobby Farms. Salmonella used to be a disease contracted from chicken droppings contaminating the food. However, now with the huge egg industry, the Salmonella is in the oviducts of the hen because they have no where to go in the cage. Their living space is about the same as your computer screen. Locally produced eggs have their hens on the pasture not in cages and have much less risk of internal contamination. Check out he CDC website on this issue.
