August 25, 2010 – This week, the Michigan Department of Agriculture announced that eggs associated with the latest Salmonella recall have been distributed in the state.
As the federal government investigates the egg recall and the related salmonella outbreak that it says has sickened about 1,300 Americans, the regulatory process is coming under scrutiny from the agencies responsible and people affected by the food safety crisis.
According to FDA, the current outbreak began in May and was traced to two Iowa farms. One of them, Wright County Egg, has recalled 380 million eggs; the other, Hillandale Farms, recalled 170 million eggs.
New regulations went into effect July 9, requiring egg producers with more than 3,000 hens to take measures designed to prevent the spread of salmonella.
While FDA inspectors typically didn’t inspect farms until after an outbreak of illness, Jeff Farrar, the associate commissioner for food safety at the FDA, said under the new rule, “We will be beginning routine inspections of egg farms throughout the United States.”
