State Says Recalled Eggs Distributed In Michigan 8-24-2010

The Michigan Department of Agriculture received confirmation on Tuesday that eggs associated with the current nationwide recall have been distributed in Michigan.
"This is a fluid, changing process as the investigation is ongoing," said Don Koivisto, MDA Director. "Federal, state, and local investigators follow the chain of evidence to identify the various channels of distribution."
The contaminated eggs have been traced to two Iowa egg producers. Recalls of those eggs began on Aug. 13 and were expanded on Aug. 18 and Aug. 20. The state said interested consumers should monitor the FDA website for the most current information.
“The best advice I can give is be an informed consumer," said Koivisto. "Ask where eggs are purchased and always cook your eggs well. And, always, the best rule of thumb is when in doubt, throw it out."
Officials with the MDA said investigators have been actively tracing where the contaminated eggs were distributed, and although the Iowa egg producers did not directly sell recalled eggs to customers located in Michigan, some of their customers were food distributors and wholesalers who then sold the eggs to Michigan locations.
Michigan is recommending that retailers, institutions and food service facilities -- particularly those serving high-risk populations, such as nursing homes, senior citizen nutrition programs, schools or hospitals -- should contact their suppliers to verify that they have not received recalled products. Firms receiving recalled products should follow disposition instructions from their supplier.
MDA continues to work with state and federal investigators to identify where the recalled eggs were distributed and will be conducting recall effectiveness checks to ensure recalled eggs are being removed from the marketplace.
