The following X-Large eggs packaged under the Sparboe Farms brand name includes:

Product: Plant # Julian Dates: States Potentially Affected: UPC #
Sparboe Farms XL18 count 1906 219 NE, IA, SD 4461907033
XL Loose 15 dozen 1906 219 IL, IA N/A

There is a sign that the buyers of the eggs are going to be expanding the inspection that they do as part of their buys. Costco has been looking at the holes in their inspection of the Wight County Eggs facility. It is important that the middle companies are thinking about safety as much as the initial producers.

Clearly, there was a problem at the plant as federal regulators are finding mice present, leaking or piled up chicken manure, unsealed holes in walls and uncaged hens tracking through waste.

For all consumers, there is a very helpful site called the Egg Safety Center that has been provided by United Egg Producers. While there could be some issues with the source, it seems to be a site working to get the recall information out to the public.

It will be very interesting to watch the Wright County investigation as it expands. I also give thanks for a administration that cares about protecting the consumer first.
