One person died after being hospitalized for salmonella, although Homewood's executive director, Eric Nichols, said the death was from other complications. A second person hospitalized for the infection has returned to the home.

This is terrible. Everyone out there is really look into alternatives. I mean I know that the gov. is now pressing to increase inspections and advance the technology to better test for salmonella in eggs. However, there is currently relieve out there on the market. There are pasteurized eggs. They are safe from bacteria and virtually reduce the risk of getting sick from salmonella. This would probably be important,especially now during the holiday season, as more people are cooking and baking. I am a person who is concerned about their health and what they eat. And when it comes to food, you can never be too sure. Rather be safe, and keep my friends and family safe too.
