WASHINGTON (AP) - A spokeswoman for one of two Iowa farms
involved in a massive egg recall says the firm is ready to
cooperate with federal officials conducting an investigation.
In a statement, Hinda Mitchell of Wright County Egg said that
its management has addressed food safety issues "swiftly and
effectively" whenever they have been raised in the past.
Mitchell also said that Wright County Egg, in such
circumstances, has worked with "recognized outside experts" to
identify and correct operational issues. She said the company is
approaching its work with the Food and Drug Administration "in the
same forthright manner."
FDA investigators have yet to determine the cause of the
salmonella outbreaks, but it could take months because the source
is hard to find.
