Eggdom Control in the Works?

While the FDA approved GMO’s, which has been shown in many cases worldwide,  to cause deformities, abortion, sterility,  brain damage, cancers, so many health issues I can’t name them all, they instead go after private industry to REGULATE them on safety issues. Let’s not forget Floride in our drinking water and oral hygiene products!  Yet another case, our government allows,  is the import of fruit and vegetables not even grown in America and who knows what the laws or code enforcement is in foreign countries?  I’ve heard some nasty stuff about the veggies coming from Mexico, how some use human feces as fertilizer….just plain gross, but that’s our insane government at work folks.

I feel bad for those who have become ill from this latest EGG ‘outbreak’, whether it was from their own lack of safety or from neglect at the hands of others. Growing up on a farm where we raised our own chickens and collected eggs fresh from the hen’s nests, I do not recall EVER getting sick from an egg. Now for those that may not know, if you get a carton of eggs and find one cracked, do you use it anyways,  or do you throw it out?

My personal safety tips are: To be on the safe side, First, if possible, open the carton and check for damaged eggs prior to purchase.  Should you get home with and later discover a damaged egg, I would  never use it, but would throw it out. If others have been contaminated inside the carton, remove them and wash them with warm soapy water, along with the container or place clean dried eggs in a clean bowl and refrigerate.

As to Salmonella getting ‘inside’ an eggwhich I’ve never heard of til now— if the shell is compromised, then I could see how a bacteria could get inside the egg, otherwise the contaminate would be on the outside of the egg, such as one covered from an egg that was broken inside the carton. As I understand it, most egg suppliers run the eggs thru a bleaching/decontamination process to kill such bacteria before being packaged for resale.  Go to this link for info http://www.thepoultrysite.com/articles/1548/smallscale-egg-handling-1

IF this bacteria is found to come from inside the egg,  it is my opinion, that there is something seriously wrong either with the feed given to the egg laying hens which passed through them into the egg or the feed caused the shell to be malformed in some way, perhaps a soft shell and then this contaminate was able to get inside.
GMO–genetic modified organisms have been PROVEN to cause deformities in people and animals and YES, they were approved by the very same FDA that are now after the private industry.

Latest FDA Findings: 8-28-10

“The FDA said this week that investigators had confirmed the presence of salmonella at Wright County Egg and in feed used by both farms. FDA officials have said they are still investigating how the contamination happened but so far do not expect the recall to expand beyond the two farms.”

Personally, after reading the story from the AP, IMO—it looks more like the FDA taking over another PRIVATE industry using FEAR and recalls as the weapon of choice.

Maybe now eggs will DOUBLE in price because of the loss in business? Or Maybe the companies should put a disclaimer on the packages stating instructions on how to maintain egg safety for those who may not have  been taught the importance of handling food safely?

At this point in life, it really makes me glad to have been raised a country girl—common sense is something that is taught by our elders, something that is gravely missing in today’s self absorbed culture of corruption, control, greed and total lack of common sense living.

Of course a thought on the dark side, what IF, someone purposely contaminated the eggs AFTER they shipped from the plant? Someone that wanted to bring in the FDA to control the industry? Nah…..that would just be a plain ole’  conspiracy theory right? lol

GMO Effects on Livestock and People

Illnesses linked to eggs will likely grow

By MARY CLARE JALONICK, Associated Press Writer Mary Clare Jalonick, Associated Press Writer 1 min ago

WASHINGTON – A salmonella outbreak that sickened hundreds and led to the recall of hundreds of millions of eggs from one Iowa firm will likely grow, federal health officials said Thursday.

That’s because illnesses occurring after mid-July may not be reported yet, said Dr. Christopher Braden, an epidemiologist with the federal Centers for Disease Control.

Almost 2,000 illnesses from the strain of salmonella linked to the eggs were reported between May and July, about 1,300 more than usual, he said. No deaths have been reported. The CDC is continuing to receive information from state health departments as people report their illnesses.

“I would anticipate that we will be seeing more illnesses reported likely as a result of this outbreak,” said Braden. The recall of 380 million eggs from Iowa’s Wright County Egg is one of the largest shell egg recalls in recent history.

The outbreak could have been prevented if new rules to ensure egg safety had been in place a few months earlier, an FDA spokeswoman said.

The rules, which require producers to do more testing for salmonella and take other precautions, went into effect in July. They had languished for more than a decade after President Bill Clinton first proposed that egg standards be toughened. The FDA said in July that the new safeguards could reduce the number of salmonella cases by nearly 60 percent.

“There are preventive measures that would have been in place that could have prevented this,” said Sherri McGarry of the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

She and other officials declined to say what specific measures would have prevented this particular outbreak, citing an ongoing FDA investigation.

Hinda Mitchell, a spokeswoman for the company, said it abided by guidance issued by the United Egg Producers, an industry group. Those procedures mirror several aspects of the federal egg safety rule.

FDA’s McGarry said illnesses were traced back to eggs produced on three of five farms the Iowa company owns. The investigation, which includes sampling, records review and sanitation assessments, is focusing on those three farms.

Salmonella is the most common form of food poisoning from bacteria, and the strain involved in the outbreak is the most common kind of salmonella — accounting for roughly 20 percent of all such food poisonings.

Minnesota, a state with some of the best food-borne illness investigators in the country, has tied at least seven salmonella illnesses to the eggs. California has reported 266 illnesses since June and believes many are related to the eggs. Colorado saw 28 cases in June and July, about four times the usual number.

Other states have seen a jump in reports of the same type of salmonella. Spikes or clusters of suspicious cases have also been reported in Arizona, Illinois, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.

The CDC said investigations by 10 states since April have identified 26 cases where more than one person became ill. Preliminary information showed that Wright was the supplier in at least 15 of those.

Much of the investigation so far has been centered on restaurants in California, Colorado, Minnesota and North Carolina.

The eggs were distributed around the country and packaged under the names Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph’s, Boomsma’s, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemp……….”  (Click link for full story) http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_tainted_eggs

  1. Hmmm…I knew this “recall” was leading to something bigger and more sinister…..now we KNOW what it is!
    From an email letter from the Campaign for Liberty.

    Dear Friend of Liberty,

    Power-hungry statists are never satisfied.

    Now they’re attempting to use a massive egg recall to shove S. 510, the so-called “Food Safety Modernization Act,” down our throats.

    S. 510, through a patchwork of rules and regulations on the food “industry,” will throw America’s heartland under the government-subsidized corporatist bus as it crushes local and community producers of healthy food.

    Click here to contact your senators today to tell them to oppose S.510!

    Like Cap and Tax, which will guarantee higher energy bills during these rough economic times, S. 510 will further drive up the costs of living by adding more layers of bureaucracy on food production – ensuring you pay more to meet an essential need.

    Congress certainly won’t be the one tightening its belt. Section 401 of S. 510 authorizes nearly $1 billion to grow the FDA’s reach and calls for almost 4,000 new bureaucrats to be hired in fiscal year 2010 alone.

    This onerous new law will apply harshly to reputable food producers like the independent family farm, where the free market works every day to provide the public with healthy choices.

    Meanwhile, Big Agriculture will continue to use its well-entrenched connections to make sure it escapes serious scrutiny.

    The statists have worked to replace “credible evidence” with “reasonable probability” in the U.S. Code, giving the FDA power to invade, quarantine, or shut down private property in search of any foodborne illness.

    They also changed “presents a threat of serious adverse health consequences or death to humans or animals” to “is adulterated or misbranded.” What exactly constitutes adulterated? That glass of raw milk? An FDA bureaucrat will decide.

    It gets worse.

    The bill also grants blanket authority for federal agencies to impose international guidelines and standards on domestic food producers – giving agencies authority to harmonize all American food production and processes in line with the globalist Codex.

    It should be noted that Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Judd Gregg (R-NH), Chris Dodd (D-CT), and Richard Burr (R-NC) coordinated to reach a “bipartisan” agreement to forge ahead with the otherwise stalled bill.

    If you are a constituent of any of these senators, they especially need to hear from you.

    Big Brother and Big Agriculture are combating the truly modern way to improve food safety by targeting the rapidly growing number of food producers who, through the free market, provide diversity and give us choices.

    The establishment is pushing for more consolidation and is looking to control your food choices to make it happen. Don’t stomach another round of tyranny. Contact your senators today.

    In Liberty,

    John Tate

    President

    P.S. Gluttonous statists are drooling to pass not only this bill, but other assaults like DISCLOSE and Cap and Tax. If you are able, please chip in $10 today so Campaign for Liberty can stay on the offensive against any infringements on our freedoms.

  2. From what I’ve found, Floride was used in Nazi Germany and used on the population in order to keep them ‘calm’. They did not know about the severe side -effects or long term effects, which can wreck the human body, but WE DO, yet, “Those SAME Powers that Be” who control our government WANT Americans dumbed-down and drugged so we are least likely to discover what they are doing and rise up against them.
    They also discovered a way to dispose of that toxic chemical, damage our future generations, and MAKE money doing it. The evil that they do is an ancient malevolence in nature knows NO bounds of the hatred they have for the seed of Adam, the Gentile race and those who believe in Jesus Christ= All those NOT them is to be destroyed, in anyway possible.

  3. LMAO!!—hahahahaha
    Vincent Price as Egghead…hahahaha
    Eggs with radars–hmmmm, now we know why the recall right?
    Those eggs be destined for transplants.

  4. Good morning Lisa, Arlene
    Love the Egg Videos Lisa.

    Arlene, my buddy raises chickens and I get my brown eggs from him now. The Coyotes have hit his place several times now too.

    • Morning Sami
      Brown eggs used to be the best as I remember and only certain breeds of chickens lay them. We had some that had double yolks even .

  5. oh no… i am hearing coyotes howling outside. i left the chicken house door opened. keep fingers crossed that chickens will be safe til morning.

    • We lost allot of chickens in the early morning that would rise before sunrise to get the bugs under the security light in the yard. Those coyotes would wait at the light edge in the shadows and snatch them when they got close to them. Can’t name the number of times Daddy woke me up shooting at them in the early morn….lol I’d get up and there he’d be on the back porch in his boxers shooting up a storm…and mad cause they got one of his hens.

  6. fresh farm eggs are the safest to eat, in my opinion. i suspect that the large industrial farms are craming too many chickens in small cages & they don’t let them roam about freely. and they hardly clean the chicken house or the water container.

    i have not been getting eggs lately … probably due to the weather being extremely hot. i had several egg producing hens several months ago that laid eggs every day, but they got drug off by some critters; so i had to re-start raising news ones from baby chicks 4 months ago. until my hens start laying eggs again, i buy from neighbors who have egg producing hens. i see signs all the time saying “fresh eggs from free range hens”.

    • Good morning everyone and a Big hug to Arlene. We have indeed been missing you honey. 🙂

      I agree Arlene about the fresh eggs being better for ya if possible to get. The problem is, the FDA is or has already made many problems for small farmers to sell their produce in local markets and it will only get worst as time goes by IMO. They are trying to regulate the small man out of existence in order to control it all.

  7. Sami
    I’m sure Barney the Frank will be happy to know you are doing your part to provide for his salary so he can spend it on his fairy boat rides…..lol

  8. I shudder at the very thought of undercooked meat…..especially chicken, pork or fish. A pink line on a steak I can handle as long as no blood is running—otherwise, no way, it makes me ill and can’t eat it.

    Not being regular huh? lol…..I’m afraid Grannies cure would work on me from the top end and not the backend…hahahaha

  9. Lisa I posted some updates at Voting American last night. You might like them and if so feel free to use them Dear. Have a great day, I am off to work.

    • Morning Sami
      Thanks …I’ll check them out. Have a nice day at work.
      Eggs going cheap huh? Makes me reconsider raising some free range yardbirds like we did as a kid growing up.

  10. Pingback: To Arms, to Arms, the Commies are HERE! | Voting American

  11. Good Morning Lisa. Boy, egg’s are really cheap up here now. The guy at the 711 is selling them at 10 cents a dozen. lol

    • Sami
      That was AWESOME! President Reagan loved this country and the people. Let us also remember the many assassination attempts on his life too. Evil men do not like men that STAND for Truth and justice, and who have FAITH in our Father in Heaven. His VP was evil just as IMO was LBJ compared to JFK.
      Maybe they do not realize the evil they do, but without faith to guide them, they become lost and push the agenda of Lucifer.
      Obama is one such cat….he follows the Luciferian agenda IMO….I pray that he too will awaken one day from the koolaide he has been fed his entire life.

  12. Good Morning Lisa. This is a very serious problem and likely to grow. I myself have noticed not feeling well after eating eggs recently. This is no Yoke.

    Seriously, I am glad to see someone reporting on this.

    • Sami
      Sorry you too felt sick from eating eggs. Thanks for the comments on my new post. I just find it amazing how much control or lack thereof is taking place in our private industries….even an egg! I know they do NOT look like the ones fresh from the hen, and know that is because of the cleaning process, but now a ‘outbreak’ of ‘bacteria’ on them? Hmmmmmm…..and the claims that this bacteria got INSIDE the eggs—well they would damn sure have to consider me from the Missouri state and SHOW ME, before I’d believe that one.
      IF this bacteria is found to come from inside the egg, that means there is something seriously wrong either with the feed given to the egg laying hens which passed through them into the egg or the feed caused the shell to be malformed in some way, perhaps a soft shell and then this contaminate was able to get inside.
      GMO–genetic modified organisms have been PROVEN to cause deformities in people and animals and YES, they were approved by the very same FDA that are now after the private industry.
      It’s a NO WIN for everyone, except those in power—just as the Commies/Luciferians like it!
