FDA: Feed to be blamed for salmonella in major egg recall

27-08-2010 | |

The US Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA) said that animal feed was possibly the reason for the massive egg recall which occurred recently, said a report by Reuters.

The blame can likely be attributed to feed that caused the salmonella outbreak in which half half billion eggs have been recalled recently.
The major recall of the salmonella outbreak in eggs followed weeks after a new FDA rule took effect which stated that large producers should test for salmonella bacteria in poultry houses.

P1860 – Julian dates ranging from 099 to 230
P1663 – Julian dates ranging from 137 to 230
