Salmonella Is IN the Eggs

The American Council for Science and Health published a brief report on the current massive commercial egg recall in the U.S.  Read it for the CDC’s tips on avoiding Salmonella infection.

I had thought the Salmonella germs were simply on the surface of the eggs.  Not so, according to ACSH: the hens’ ovaries are contaminated, so the germ ends up in the egg white, yolk, and shell.
