Egg Recall – Not Eggland’s Best Eggs

By now you must have heard about the egg recall.

Not only did we want to let you know that Eggland’s Best eggs are not part of any recall you may have heard about, but we also wanted to give you some hard facts:

· EB eggs are safe.

· EB eggs are not produced in Iowa

· EB has the most comprehensive food safety quality assurance program and will never compromise when it comes to consumer safety.

What makes us different?

· The Eggland’s Best food safety quality assurance program was introduced in 1995 and adheres to and goes beyond the FDA Egg Safety Rule in many ways, including our requirement to vaccinate all hens 3 times to create resistance to Salmonella infection so that consumers can use EB eggs with confidence.

Yes, that is correct! All EB hens are vaccinated 3 times against Salmonella!




· Eggland’s Best hens are fed an all-natural, all-vegetarian diet that does not contain animal fat or other animal by-products, a potential cause for salmonella.
· We require extensive cleaning and disinfecting of poultry houses.
· We require strict pest control inspections.
· We require proper egg washing and plant sanitation procedures.
· We implement a strict bio-security program– ensuring that all visitors and employees on farm premises follow proper disease-preventive practices.
· We require proper refrigeration of eggs at or below 45 degrees.
· All operations are certified under the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program.
· All plants producing EB eggs are inspected by USDA.
-All farms and processing plants are inspected by a certified veterinarian on an ongoing basis.
-EB has stricter standards for eliminating cracked eggs, which helps to ensure that no bacteria get into EB eggs.
-USDA allows regular generic eggs to be stored up to 21 days before packing into cartons, whereas Eggland’s Best sets a maximum of 7 days. Most EB eggs leave our farms within 24-48 hours after production, or as soon as they have completely cooled to 45 degrees or below. Fresher eggs are more resistant to bacterial growth.
-EB conducts over 45,000 tests annually to ensure that our product meets the highest standards.
-A USDA publication states, “After washing, the eggs should be quickly and completely dried to reduce the risk that any bacteria remaining on the surface of the eggs are aspirated into the eggs as they cool to ambient temperature.” Only Eggland’s Best uses supplementary drying fans to ensure that eggs are 100% dry when eggs are packed into cartons. -Regular eggs that go into the carton wet, sit in a moist environment conducive to bacteria and mold growth.
-EB eggs are produced by younger hens, not just because the egg quality is better, but also because younger hens are more resistant to disease. They will most likely have had fewer chances for exposure to disease.
-FDA put into effect the Egg Safety Rule on July 9, 2010, but the program was proposed in September of 2004. Eggland’s Best began to implement the program years before it went into effect.
