Washington based firm, Nutriom, LLC. has announced on Feb 15 that they are recalling dozens of dried egg based products due to a possible Salmonella contamination.

The full list of products can be found on the USDA press release; consumers with health concerns should consult with their health care provider. Symptoms of Salmonella include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever.

By raising your own birds, you can eliminate the risk of contaminated, mass produced egg products. It is possible to test your backyard chickens for Salmonella with a simple fecal test run by a veterinarian, who can then recommend a suitable course of action if any come back positive.

Prevention is always better than cure, so always ensue that coops and runs are kept clean and dry and free of fecal matter, and also well ventilated, but dust free. Wild birds and rodents should be kept away from poultry wherever possible, as they carry many diseases that it is possible for them to transmit.
