House to Call Wright Salmonella Egg Man to Testify

Just off the wire from AP:

A House Energy and Commerce subcommittee will hold a hearing on the recall Sep 14. They are inviting Austin “Jack” DeCoster, the head of Wright County Egg, and Orland Bethel, the head of Hillandale Farms. The two farms have recalled more than 550 million eggs after they were linked to as many as 1,300 cases of salmonella poisoning.  The committee is doing an investigation into the recall and has written both companies, along with the Food and Drug Administration and the Agriculture Department, demanding answers on the recall.

Hmm, now I have to fly home early from New Zealand where I am giving a speech on food safety.
