My elderly parents arrived from Canada yesterday, and we took them out to dinner.
Australia not only has an egg problem, it has a regulatory problem.
The company that packed those eggs involved in the Salmonella outbreak that sickened at least 20 in the Gold Coast, and may be linked to 250 illnesses in Brisbane (but nobody’s talking about that) has expanded its list of recalled products because they’re dirty.
Safefood Queensland today decided to tweet, “Don’t serve raw egg foods that won’t be cooked to the elderly, small children, pregnant women & people with compromised immune systems.”
250 school principals generally don’t fall into those categories. A table of the shit fest of Australian raw egg outbreaks is available at https://barfblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/raw-egg-related-outbreaks-australia-3-12-15-2.pdf. Why are consumers the critical control point in this?
I can’t make this stuff up. Tax dollars at work.
Use pasteurized eggs. Use a tip-sensitive digital thermometer and stick it in.
