Egg Farm Tested Positive for Salmonella 426 Times

The House Energy and Commerce Committee wrote a letter to Wright County Egg, one of the farms responsible for last month’s egg recall, addressing concerns that the egg farm tested positive for two years with salmonella before the outbreak that sickened more than 1,500 people.
In the letter the committees said over the last two years the farm received hundreds of positive results for salmonella. According to the letter from 2008 to 2010 the farm had 426 positive tests which was not shared with the committee upon investigation.
Henry Waxman, D-California, and investigations chairman Bart Stupak penned the letter asking that the farm address these concerns at the committee meeting schedule for the end of September. “When you testify before the committee, we ask that you come prepared to explain why your facilities tested potentially positive for Salmonella Enteritidis contamination on so many occasions, what steps you took to address the contamination identified in these test results, and whether you shared these results with FDA or other federal or state food safety officials,” they wrote.
The letter stated 67 if the positive results were found in 2010 including one on July 26.
