Bad Eggs- Recall

Specs: N/A
Has anyone known anyone who had been affected by the egg recall? Seems so widespread on the news not unlike the coverage of H1N1. Has anyone not heard if the egg recall? If you like to read your news electronically as I do, you cannot miss it. What's fascinating is that one might end up eating products from the shell egg producers with the samonella cooked out such as in pasteurized liquid eggs and processed foods like ice cream. Ah, the efficiencies of an oligopolic food industry and it's double-edged sword. Yes, eggs are fairly cheap and affordable thanks to machinations of mass production, but on the other side of the blade is the risk of pandemic eruptions caused by shortcuts undertaken by desperate or perhaps just corrupt producers.

Forgot to also ask...have you ever gotten food poisoning before? I have, and it can be the worst thing ever. Let's see...I've gotten it from certain types of sushi, raw oysters, an Indian food buffet, undercooked eggs (way long before this recent recall, so not related to the recent wave of samonella) and deli food at the local supermarket. Ironically, never got food poisoning while traveling abroad.

Well, presumably those restaurants cook the food first.

Got food poisoning in Istandbul Turkey a hundred years ago from something I can not pronounce and back here at home from chicken in a hospital cafeteria. Go figure! I know about the recall but have not really worried about it.

@harrddrocker

Sounds like something ran a bit fowl with the poultry based on your experience with the Turkey and chicken for you.

You would expect a high likelihood to get sick while in a foreign country...but at a hospital cafeteria, now that is truly ironic.

Do you now avoid eating unpronounceable foods while traveling and hospital cafeteria chicken?

Ha, ha...good point. I tend to eat more carefully while abroad and stick to the cooked foods mostly.

I haven't been abroad since being in the service unless you count some time spent in La. haha. Yes however if I don't know exactly what it is I won't eat it anymore. Where's my adventure? The stomach pump pumped it out too. I also no longer eat hospital food and am not a big fan of chicken at all. I guess doing my best Linda Blair imatation and getting assistance from the medical profession to do so has somewhat changed my attitudes towards food.

This is just another case of people panicking for no good reason. People should be aware before they consume anything from a chicken or other avian that they may catch an illness. You buy the eggs, you cook the eggs, problem solved! :)
