Cal-Maine receives shipment of recalled eggs
Published: August 23,2010
JACKSON — Cal-Maine Foods Inc. has been notified by an Iowa producer that between April 9 and Aug. 18, 2010, the producer sold 32 truckloads of eggs, or approximately 800,000 dozen eggs, to Cal-Maine. This accounts for approximately 0.3 percent of Cal-Maine’s total sales for that time period.
This product has been added to the expanded nationwide recall of salmonella-tainted eggs that have caused illnesses across the country.
“Cal-Maine has been actively monitoring this situation, and, as soon as we learned of the expanded recall, we immediately began notifying the affected customers,” said Dolph Baker, president of Cal-Maine. “None of the eggs were produced in Cal-Maine’s facilities or operations.”
Cal-Maine reports it has an industry-leading record in food safety with all of its 35 processing plants independently verified as reaching the highest level of safety by the Safe Quality Food Institute, SQF Level 3. The company follows standard industry procedures to comply with the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration’s Final Rule for Prevention of Salmonella enteritidis during production, transport and storage, which was made effective July 9.
