    2 NY legislators want eggs vaccinated

    State Sen. Daniel Squadron and Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh introduced the proposal Sunday in front of a Lower East Side supermarket in the wake of a nationwide recall of hundreds of millions of eggs.
    The stupid, it burns. If this passes, we are going to see an increase in egg prices.

    I wonder how that could be done without putting a hole in the egg, which makes it more susceptible to germs and such...

    It is clear that neither one of the two idiot legislators know anything about the production of and egg ranch, and furthermore they have to be a couple of the dumbest asses on the planet.

    The CDC says:
    An estimated 76 million cases of foodborne disease occur each year in the United States. The great majority of these cases are mild and cause symptoms for only a day or two. Some cases are more serious, and CDC estimates that there are 325,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths related to foodborne diseases each year. The most severe cases tend to occur in the very old, the very young, those who have an illness already that reduces their immune system function, and in healthy people exposed to a very high dose of an organism. Disease Listing, Foodborne Illness, General Information | CDC Bacterial, Mycotic Diseases
    These are from all food-Related sources not just eggs. This dumb idea would put more people at risk from reaction to the Vaccination as happened in the 1976 flu pandemic that never came. By the way those Flu Shots killed a bunch of people and the flu never came.

    Despite appearances, eggs are porous. The outer shell has pores which allows for gas exchange. My guess would be that the eggs would either be dipped in vaccine under pressure or exposed to some kind of spray. That, or maybe the hens themselves would be vaccinated and it would transfer to the eggs?

    What concerns me is how are you going to vaccinate something with no immune system? What exactly do they plan on injecting into the eggs?

    This is why I already spend the extra for local farm-raised, cage-free, natural nest eggs.

    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.

    I plan on doing this when I get out of school. Not only are they safer to eat, but the eggs themselves are healthier for you as well. I learned in my nutrition class that eggs produced by cage-less roaming chickens are healthier than the ones kept in cages living in unsanitary conditions.

    They want to vaccinate the chickens.

    Even then, the cost won't do much to reduce incidence of food borne illness all that much.
    Just more legislators trying to show that they're "protecting" you.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
