FDA Administration Egg Investigation

WASHINGTON (AP) - Food and Drug Administration investigators
have found rodents, seeping manure and even maggots at the Iowa egg
farms believed to be responsible for as many as 1,500 cases of
salmonella poisoning.
FDA officials released their initial observations of the ongoing
investigations at Wright County Egg and Hillandale Farms on Monday.
The two farms recalled more than half a billion eggs after
salmonella illnesses were linked to their products earlier this
month.
Reports released by the FDA show numerous violations at both
farms, incl Frig rodent, bug and wild bird infestation, uncontained
manure, holes in walls and other problems that could have caused
the outbreak.
Several positive samples of salmonella have been found at both
farms.
