Egg Supplier Fails to Follow Salmonella Regulation

FDA investigations discover egg supplier SKS Enterprises, Inc. violated regulations and put consumers’ health at risk.

Last month, the US Food and Drug Administration issued a warning letter to the California egg supplier, SKS Enterprises Inc., due to five of its facilities failing to adhere to regulations that prevent Salmonella from developing in the eggs during the production, storage, and transportation process. According to the FDA, the violation indicates that the eggs “have been prepared, packed, or held under insanitary conditions whereby they may have become contaminated with filth, or whereby they may have been rendered injurious to health.” Mercy For Animals reports that past investigations of egg facilities have revealed cruel and unsanitary conditions such as chickens being confined to small wire cages and dead chickens left out next to live ones who are still laying eggs.
