FAQs: Organic Eggs

What are the main differences between organic and non-organic eggs?

Organic eggs are produced under an approved, third-party audited organic system plan. The birds that produce these eggs are fed an organic ration from day two of age. Their feed is certified organic and produced without the use of genetic engineering. Their feed also contains no animal products. The housing for the birds is totally open inside, and the birds have access to the outside. They are never caged. A non-organic egg cannot make all of these claims.

FDA officials have not yet determined how eggs from two Iowa egg farms became contaminated with salmonella. CNN Radio’s Jim Roope talks with Dr. Nancy Reimers, a poultry veterinarian and “eggs-pert,” about how the hard-shelled orb could become contaminated.

"It’s very rare," said Reimers.

There are three ways an egg could be contaminated. One is if the egg is not properly washed. A second, is through tiny pores in the egg shell.
