What’s the problem?
September 17, 2010 – To date, some 550 million eggs have been recalled in 17 states and nearly 2,000 individuals have been sickened with salmonella poisoning. Now, congressional investigators have uncovered evidence that since 2008, Wright County Egg – The company at the center of the nationwide salmonella outbreak – recorded multiple positive tests for salmonella that it did not report.
According to a letter released this week by the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s subcommittee on oversight and investigations, Wright County Egg received 426 positive results for salmonella, including 73 samples that were potentially positive for Salmonella enteritidis, the strain involved in this summer’s outbreak. But there is no evidence that the company notified local, state or federal officials as required.
The large number of positive test results suggest that the company’s flocks were infected long before the outbreak occurred, meaning that the environmental contamination on the farm was severe.
