Hundreds of millions of eggs have been recalled after an outbreak of salmonella was traced to a single monolithic egg farm in North Carolina. The New York Times reported that the eggs were delivered to food retailers and restaurants in nine states, including Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Co-op merchandisers have confirmed that our egg distributors and suppliers are not part of the recall. That’s good news; however, when it comes to recalls, the news can change quickly. As a recall is investigated, it often expands, such as a massive recall on peanuts and peanut products in 2008.
One of the many benefits of Co-op membership is personal notification of product recalls. Arguably it’s the one member benefit with a direct correlation to consumer safety. If you purchase a product using your member number, we can contact you if the product is recalled.
