6? Why, that's only a half dozen! But I wanted a full dozen. I guess I'll have to wait.

Sounds like scummy LA residents trying to get on the SUE TRAIN. EVERY time you eat any eggs, you need to cook them thoroughly, and you will not have a problem.
This should be a NON-TOPIC! I buy ALOT of eggs from Ralphs and have never gotten ill from them. I cook them!
I bet at least half of these people mentioned in this story saw the story and decided to get on the money train.. Don't pay them a dime! Thank you.

The company responsible for this has been paying fines for animal cruelty and unsanitary conditions for more than 10 years, yet there hasn't been a single FDA inspection. This is criminal neglect by a government agency.

Both those egg farms are under the same corrupt ownership.

Don't stop buying eggs, just switch to free-range or cage-free. They're a little more expensive, but so far worth it.

Can we get a little perspective here, only 6 people in all of L.A. County have come down with any sickness due to this egg "scare"? The media hysteria is way out of hand for this story. Should we have food safety and regulations? absolutely but before this story was blown out of proportion, how many people have come down ill from eating a bad egg or two?" The news media has no intelligence and plays follow the leader with "big" news stories in many cases and this is a prime example.

I am 100% sure more than 6 people have gotten sick from these eggs. Only those 6 have reported it. My husband ate those contaminated eggs and also became very sick. He did not seak medical attention as he decided to ride it out. We did not know it was due to the eggs until 10 days latter when the news reported the incident and we checked our eggs, no surprise, we had a contaminated batch. Needless to say I threw them out. It is indeed very serious, and not something to take lightly.
