    Consumption of eggs

    With the news of problems with eggs in the US -- and this isn't the first time in recent years -- are you getting concerned about consuming eggs? Have you changed your consumption of eggs due to salmonella issues?

    For the record: I put not concerned about it, but I live in a country that hasn't had a problem with salmonella -- though recent studies here do link higher cancer risk with free range eggs...

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    If this was winter time (November - February) It'd be an issue because that's when I make pastries, breads, pasta, etc . . . but durin the summer we don't consume eggs at all.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    I have been careful about my sources for a few years now. I now buy only organic eggs, but if I am out for breakfast I will settle for whatever I can get.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    I pretty much eat eggs every day, and that's not going to change.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    Upon reflection, I answered the poll incorrectly. My habits have chaged, but it's not due to the salmonella. So I should have answered the third option.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    I buy my eggs from local organic farmers. I'm not concerned.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    I'm always careful with poultry products of all types. Cross contamination can be present without a widespread outbreak and recall. My habits have not changed.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    We've eaten cage-free organic eggs for years, so I'm not particularly concerned about an outbreak of salmonella in factory farmed eggs. This is precisely why we eat the way we do.

    Re: Consumption of eggs

    I just sent my wife the recall information and she checked it against what is in the fridge. Looks like we are fine.
