Workshop: Protect your egg-laying hens and customers from Salmonella

Date & Time:
07/21/2016 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Headquarters
1001 Blair Drive, Raleigh, NC 27603

Your customers value your free-range fresh, local eggs. Protect them from food-borne diseases caused by Salmonella.

As you know, eggs can sometimes have feathers, dirt and bird droppings on them. How do you clean off the visible dirt? Do you wash these eggs with water or a dry cloth?  Did you know that Salmonella bacteria can enter the shell of the egg if you soak the egg, or use water that is too cool?

This workshop will provide demonstrations of a few different egg washing techniques. We will discuss egg collecting and nesting strategies to minimize the build-up of debris and Salmonella bacteria.
