The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning letter to CEO John Glessner of Ohio Fresh Eggs, after finding that it had shipped nearly 800 cases of eggs from farms that had tested positive for Salmonella. The Ohio company is reportedly linked to the egg producer involved in a massive egg recall in 2010; Glessner apparently has ties to Hillandale Farms of Iowa whose owner Jack DeCoster apparently provided most of the funds to purchase Ohio Fresh Eggs from a previous owner. The company has reportedly characterized the shipment as a mistake and was quoted as saying, “Our farm cooperated fully with FDA to ensure a swift and complete recall of those eggs from our customer, and we are thankful no illnesses were reported.” See Des Moines Register, March 1, 2011.
