A message from America’s Egg Farmers
You’ve probably heard about the recent egg recall. As egg farmers, we’re concerned, and continue to work closely with the FDA and USDA to help ensure the safest and highest quality eggs possible.
Not to mention the work of the New York Times.
The same day the Times ran the America’s Egg Farmer ad (Egg Safety Center website here), the paper featured two stories about the recall.
Times Page One headline:
U.S. Rejected Hen Vaccine Despite British Success
Times Business Day Page One headline:
Egg Recall Exposes Flaws in Nation’s Food Safety System
So, to review:
To all appearances, the Times believes the problem is lack of government oversight, not lack of America’s Egg Farmers oversight. But nowhere in the two Times pieces does the paper acknowledge its own financial connection to the industry.
Egg on the Times’ face?
