FDA: Egg safety rules may slash sal­monella

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

The Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion says egg safety rules that just took ef­fect could pre­vent thou­sands of cases of sal­monella poi­son­ing each year. The FDA says they could re­duce the num­ber of sal­monella ill­nesses nearly 60 per­cent. The govern­ment will now re­quire some egg pro­duc­ers to do more test­ing for sal­monella, and large-scale pro­duc­ers will have to con­stantly re­frig­er­ate eggs while they are stored and trans­ported.
