So, what’s gonna happen to those half billion eggs under recall? From what I can tell, the ones that actually get recovered—which will doubtless be a tiny percentage of the total that were sold—will still end up getting eaten by people.
Where? At college dining halls, prisons, and other shitty cafeterias that rely on “liquid eggs” for scrambled eggs and omelets. See, these liquid egg plants pasteurize eggs sufficiently to kill the salmonella, which renders the resultant product legal for resale. Our friends at the Food Safety Inspection Service have the details.
