FDA allows Iowa farm at center of egg recall to resume distribution

The Food and Drug Administration has allowed an Iowa farm involved in the largest egg recall in the nation's recent history to resume distribution.

Hillandale Farms and Wright County Egg launched voluntary recalls in August because of concerns that their eggs could be tainted with salmonella. No one is believed to have died as a result of the contamination, but hundreds of people have gotten sick.

In a letter to Hillandale Farms plant manager Gary Barness, the FDA writes that "FDA finds your corrective actions to be adequate." The farm will hold off on shipping eggs from four hen houses that tested positive for salmonella until they clear four rounds of egg testing.
