DeCosters' Egg Executives in Jail

Two former egg industry executives received jail time for knowingly allowing potentially Salmonella contaminated eggs to enter the market that are believed to have sickened an estimated 56,000 people.

According to NBC News:

The DeCosters' Quality Egg company paid a $6.8 million fine as part of a plea agreement, and the DeCosters each paid $100,000. Quality Egg has admitted that workers knowingly shipped eggs with false processing and expiration dates to fool state regulators and retail customers about their age and bribed a U.S. Department of Agriculture inspector at least twice to approve sales of poor-quality eggs.

Salmonella can get into an egg from the inside out or the outside in.

Chickens can acquire salmonella from their filthy environment in factory farms (regardless of whether they're conventional, organic or free-range), which is easily contaminated by rodents and flies, who can transmit salmonella. Also, hens infected with salmonella can pass it to their eggs.

This is one more reason why crowding and confining farmed animals hurts animals and hurts us.
