    Yeah. I could spend $1 per carton and risk salmonella. Or I could spend an extra $1.50 a week to completely be (mostly) worry-free from such concerns.

    So you pay a smug tax of a dollar more for (mostly) the same risk.

    The legislators say that vaccinations costing one penny per dozen eggs would nearly eliminate the more than 100,000 salmonella cases each year in the United States.
    I'd pay a penny for a vastly reduced chance of salmonella. But I guess I'm just a smug, out of touch liberal.

    Have you seen what free range chickens eat? ANYTHING that is on the ground.....
    I eat a lot of eggs, Been eating eggs for over 60 years and never gotten sick from eggs. An undercooked burger once, and some leftover fried fish, but never from an egg.

    Yeah... But what's weird is that those chickens are less likely to carry illness than the chemically altered ones.

    See. To those of you who use political points in EVERY topic - here's 2 people in the same town saying that we agree on one thing.

    Price makes no differance. The bottom line is that you need the government to protect you from your lack of knowing how to properly cook an egg or clean your kitchen. Being the knowledgeable conservative I am, I know that salmonella dies in poultry at 165 degrees and bleach should be used when cooking is finished. These legislators are only proposing this because the believe their constituents are to stupid to handle raw eggs on their own.

    Amen!

    This proposed solution is nothing more than a band-aid solution to a much bigger problem.

    Just more legislators trying to show that they're "protecting" you.
    Horray... someone actually read the article...

    BTW, vaccination of chickens is common place in many European and Asian countries. Living in Taiwan, which has a significant poultry industry, I have NEVER heard of any problems with salmonella in chickens, ducks or their eggs (we eat chicken, duck and goose eggs here).

    You know the environment those cage free chickens are living is in very important to how healthy those eggs are. If there are a lot of pollutants in the ground, it can actually be more hazardous to long-term health than eggs from caged chickens. A study in Tainan showed a higher risk of cancer from eating free-range eggs than eggs from caged chickens...
