In the Raw: Safety Facts About Eggs

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Many Americans love to celebrate summer with backyard barbeques and picnics in the park. Nothing brings friends and family together like beautiful weather and delicious food. Many traditional summer dishes call for the use of cooked and raw eggs. So in the spirit of summer the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association is reminding Coloradans about egg safety and handling tips to help ensure that everyone’s favorite recipes are safe to eat.

CEP is a membership organization representing seven farms throughout Colorado. CEP is committed to doing what’s right for its community, as illustrated by the regular donation of thousands of eggs to food banks throughout the state. Egg farmers throughout Colorado pride themselves on providing eggs to Coloradans. We are also proud to offer consumers the choice between cage, cage-free eggs, organic, nutrient enhanced, brown and white eggs. You can find locally produced, fresh, wholesome and safe eggs in the dairy case of your favorite Colorado supermarkets.
