An FDA report reveals the Hyde County farm where 206 million eggs were recalled from had a rodent infestation and unsanitary conditions that allowed for the “spread of filth and pathogens” throughout the facility.
The FDA said the eggs had the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.
The report states there were numerous live and dead rodents throughout and that actions taken by the firm were not successful at reducing their number.
According to the report, proper cleaning procedures were not observed at the facility, and there is condensation dripping “from the ceiling, pipes, and down walls, onto production equipment (i.e crack detector, egg grader) and pooling on floors in foot traffic and forklift pathways.”
Many other sanitation procedures were not being observed, according to the report. You can read the full report here.
