Why? Seriously. Why? Ten years ago, Great Britain faced a very dangerous salmonella outbreak in which many people were sickened by infected eggs. They began vaccinating hens against the salmonella bacteria and have virtually wiped out the disease in that country. We had the opportunity years ago to begin using that same vaccine. Only we didn’t. And now look where we are. And in case you’re wondering whether the rules about whether or not to vaccinate were created years and years ago, they weren’t. Try last month. That’s when the decision was made. And I know. We’re in an economic crisis. Maybe those vaccinations were going to cost those poor farmers and arm and a leg. That must be it. Try one penny per dozen eggs. Really! There’s no excuse on this one. They think that maybe this outbreak will tip the scales in favor of using the vaccine. Ya’ think?
