This morning we noticed that there has been a voluntary recall of the Larry Schulz organic eggs because of an outbreak of Salmonella. This is a quote from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture: “Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in very young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain. Anyone who believes they may have become ill with Salmonella should contact their health care provider.”
As producers of shell eggs we are of course concerned about providing our customers with the safest eggs possible. We provide our flock of ducks with plenty of living space in our hoophouse and fresh bedding, as well as access to rotated pasture throughout the day. Our ducks live separately from the rest of our farm animals, in their own fenced in paddock which is more than half an acre.
Every day we inspect each egg for defects or cracks. We are very small scale and have a hands-on approach to every aspect of our farm.
We would like to remind all of our customers to cook each egg thoroughly to kill any bacteria that may exist, in order to prevent any illness.
