McDonald’s dumps egg supplier after safety, cruelty concerns

Last year, more than half a billion eggs were recalled after Salmonella sickened more than 1,000 people, the largest egg recall in U.S. history. The recall did not involve Sparboe Farms.

I believe the last line in the McDonald’s/ Sparboe Farms article today is incorrect.

According to the FDA, Sparboe packaged the eggs included in the big recall last year.


You are right. We corrected the story: GBU Editor
