After the massive egg recall (380 million to date) of August 13, the Federal Department of Agriculture (FDA) is investigating the production methods of two large Iowa egg producers. The eggs were recalled due to potential salmonella contamination, and the FDA launched the investigation on Wright Country Egg and Hillandale Farms under the suspicion of lax procedures. “There is no question that these farms that are involved in the recall were not operating with the standards of practice that we consider responsible,” FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said.
