HERE IS THE MESSAGE FROM THE MARQUETTE FOOD CO-OP ABOUT THE EGG RECALL:

Certified Organic Eggs from Larry Schultz Farm, MN have been recalled due to salmonella contamination. The Marquette Food Co-op would like to encourage all of those who may have purchased eggs with this date stamp (286 EXP NOV 12 or 286 NOV 12) at our store to return them fora full refund. This information can be found on the side of the egg carton. If the carton has “sell by” or a plant number on the label, they are not part of the recall.

October 2, 2011 was the last time that we sold a carton of Larry Schultz eggs. The date of the reported contamination and illness is August 12 to September 24. We have no way of knowing if the Larry Schultz eggs we sold during this period of time are part of the recall. Regardless, bring back any Larry Schultz eggs to the Marquette Food Co-op for a full refund.

The frozen chicken we buy is not part of the recall, and we do not currently have Larry Schultz eggs in stock. All eggs on our shelves at this time are from local farms. For more information, please read the release from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture HERE.
