    Just thought i'd make you brothers and sisters aware of the major egg recall taking place, obviously there is some salmonella breakout in many of the egg brands in local grocery stores, so i think we need to be on the lookout, and not just eat anything from them without being up on whats going on.

    More than a half-billion eggs have been recalled in the nationwide investigation of a salmonella outbreak that Friday expanded to include a second Iowa farm. The outbreak has already sickened more than 1,000 people and the toll of illnesses is expected to increase.

    Iowa's Hillandale Farms said Friday it was recalling more than 170 million eggs after laboratory tests confirmed salmonella. The company did not say if its action was connected to the recall by Wright County Egg, another Iowa farm that recalled 380 million eggs earlier this week. The latest recall puts the total number of potentially tainted eggs at about 550 million.

    FDA spokeswoman Pat El-Hinnawy said the two recalls are related. The strain of salmonella bacteria causing the poisoning is the same in both cases, salmonella enteritidis.

    Federal officials say it's one of the largest egg recalls in recent history. Americans consume about 220 million eggs a day, based on industry estimates. Iowa is the leading egg producing state.

    The eggs recalled Friday were distributed under the brand names Hillandale Farms, Sunny Farms, Sunny Meadow, Wholesome Farms and West Creek. The new recall applies to eggs sold between April and August.

    Hillandale said the eggs were distributed to grocery distribution centers, retail groceries and food service companies which service or are located in fourteen states, including Arkansas, California, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin.

    Thoroughly cooking eggs can kill the bacteria. But health officials are recommending people throw away or return the recalled eggs.

    A food safety expert at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y., said the source of the outbreak could be rodents, shipments of contaminated hens, or tainted feed. Microbiology professor Patrick McDonough said he was not surprised to hear about two recalls involving different egg companies, because in other outbreaks there have also been multiple sources.

    Both plants could have a rodent problem, or both plants could have gotten hens that were already infected, or feed that was contaminated.

    "You need biosecurity of the hen house, you want a rodent control program and you want to have hens put into that environment that are salmonella free," McDonough said.

    The salmonella bacteria is not passed from hen to hen, but usually from rodent droppings to chickens, he added. This strain of bacteria is found inside a chicken's ovaries, and gets inside an egg.

    CDC officials said Thursday that the number of illnesses related to the outbreak is expected to grow. That's because illnesses occurring after mid-July may not be reported yet, said Dr. Christopher Braden, an epidemiologist with the federal Centers for Disease Control.

    Almost 2,000 illnesses from the strain of salmonella linked to both recalls were reported between May and July, almost 1,300 more than usual, Braden said. No deaths have been reported. The CDC is continuing to receive information from state health departments as people report their illnesses.

    The most common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight hours to 72 hours of eating a contaminated product. It can be life-threatening, especially to those with weakened immune systems.

    The form of salmonella tied to the outbreak can be passed from chickens that appear healthy. And it grows inside eggs, not just on the shell, Braden noted.

    More reason to get on board:

    http://noi.org/3year-econ.html

    THE THREE YEAR ECONOMIC SAVINGS Program was established by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in 1964. This program called for black people to pool their resources by contributing $10 a month to help fight against poverty, want, unemployment, abominable housing, hunger and nakedness of the 30-40 million black people in America. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan re-established this program in October 1991 because we still continue face these same problems today. The Program's name might imply that it was to last for only three years. However this will be an ongoing program until the problems of our people are eradicated.


    In December 1994, we were able to purchase, with contributions from the Three Year Economic Saving Program, some farmland located in Bronwood, Georgia. This land is located in the northeast corner of Terrell county, which is in the southwest part of Georgia, not far from the Florida border. The farm consists of 1556 acres of land that stretches 1.45 miles east and west and 2 miles north and south. The farm, which is called Muhammad Farms, was once part of a 4500-acre farm owned by the Nation of Islam until the 1970s. If it is Allah's (God) will, with your continued support and prayers we plan to repurchase the remaining acreage in the near future.

    In our first year of farming we purchased three tractors, a new diesel farm truck, a new three bed-room double wide trailer (which is used as an office/living quarters), a large array of farm equipment, a refrigerated trailer for on-site vegetable storage and an irrigation system. In 1995 we planted and harvested 76.3 acres of land, including watermelons, cantaloupes, sweet corn, snap beans, okra, yellow squash, zucchini, butternut squash, peas and greens.

    The produce, excluding the greens and peas, was distributed to most of the Eastern, Mid-Atlantic, Central, Southern and Southwest regions of the Nation; the peas and greens were sold locally to co-ops. Our 1996 planting season was a remarkable improvement over the 1995 season. 250 acres of wheat, 80 acres of field corn, 150 acres of sorghum was planted, harvested and sold locally. We were blessed in our 1997 planting season to plant and harvest 450 acres of wheat, part of which was sold on the market and part was grounded into wheat flour.

    The vegetable crops consisted of 50 acres of navy beans, 40 acres of watermelons and 105 acres of assorted vegetables.

    In our efforts to distribute our crops we launched our Pre-Purchase Program during our Saviours Day 1997 celebration. The whole-wheat flour and navy beans are presently being sold and can be obtained through the farm marketing coordinator at your local Mosque or Study Group. In November 1997, the Three Year Economic Program and Muhammad Farms held its annual Farm Conference/Benefit in Macon, Georgia. There was a fundraiser to benefit Muhammad Farms and a conference for all Farm Marketing Coordinators to network and strategically plan the marketing of our crops for the 1998-1999 planting season.

    It's our duty to build a future for our children. It's imperative that we grow and develop into a viable agribusiness in order that we may purchase more farmland and develop other related businesses.

    In order to make this happen, we need a commitment from everyone to send your $10 a month, or whatever you can afford, contribution to:

    I am going to go out on a limb on this one and put my credability on the line


    Elijah Muahammed spoke about Motherships;


    also
    various UFO researchers state that the military is monitoring a 20 mile long UFO, hovering beyond the planet adjacent to the South Pole

    he also spoke of a "radio in the head"

    How did he know about brain inplants back in the 50s?

    Folks saw the movie "Manchurian Candidate" with Denzel,
    and those mind control brain implants are real
    http://conspiracyarchive.com/NWO/microchip_implants_mind_control.htm



    Retired Colonel Phillip Corso, was not a quack or conspiracy theorist but an officer of such prominence that he was the major player in the reconstruction of Rome after WW2,

    in his book; The Day After Roswell (9780671017569):
    he states that not only was the Roswell crash and body retreval real, but various technologies were back engineered from what they found


    do take note that the man was high up in SMOM and a staunch conservative, sworn to tell some things to the public but hide others as well.

    in this interview the first company he states that was





    entrusted with back engineered technology was
    MONSANTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    does anyone remember the first X Files movie??????????????????????

    remember the bees and the corn?

    ret Major Bob Dean, another whistleblower about
    UFO phenomenon,

    states that he spoke to the creator of the X Files, and told him that some of his stuff was so close to the real thing he wondered if someone was leaking data to him.

    I don't think the connections here need to be spelled out

    But if we raised our own heirloom seed corn, to feed our own organic chickens,
    to lay organic eggs,there would be no problem,

    and that is why the Shirley Sherrod conspiracy, and media lynching,
    to discourage us from providing our own food, is an issue that must be adressed as well

    So what is the solution? Stop buying eggs? Only buy eggs from people who you know? Raise your own chickens? This seems like a way to get people to purchase MORE eggs especially if they throw all their eggs out.
