Another week, another egg recall. This time, Cal-Maine Foods is voluntarily recalling potentially salmonella-tainted eggs the company purchased last month from Ohio Fresh Eggs. For details on the brands being recalled, visit the Egg Safety Center. The eggs were sold in 8 states: Arkansas, California, Texas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
And, it seems, all roads for tainted eggs lead to factory farmer Jack DeCoster these days. DeCoster was at the center of last summer’s huge egg recall and, it turns out, he’s also the largest investor in Ohio Fresh Eggs.
