The Joys of Eating Locally: Hickman's Family Farm Eggs Unaffected by Massive Recall

Hickman’s Family Farm eggs, a prominent brand available at most Tucson grocery stores, are not affected by the massive recall currently sweeping the country.

Yet the recall is having various effects on the Buckeye, Ariz., company.

There’s this report that several cities are turning to the company for a supply of untainted eggs. Then there’s this report that the recall could still cause company officials serious indigestion, albeit far less than what salmonella enteritidis is capable of.

The recall has not officially affected Arizona, but there are reports that health department officials are pulling eggs before they reach grocery stores.

All we have to say is that mega-farming like what takes place at the farms that produced the eggs related to the recall is gross and often inhumane. There aren’t many places to get local eggs in Tucson, other than Hickman’s, but if you’ve ever considered buying more local food, this might be a good time to start.
