A great article on using vaccines in poultry for salmonella prevention (instead of industrial washing): washing removes the cuticle of the egg, which shortens it’s shelf life and makes it permeable to air and bacteria.
I believe this is how they have almost eliminated salmonella in the Danish egg industry.
RT. eggs with the cuticle don’t actually have to be refrigerated for a while either. We leave ours out for a week or two. Man, I love hens.
Yeah, in Europe
we they don’t do this industrial washing ridiculousness. Vaccinate the hens and fix the problem at that end of production :)
