The Broken Egg Leads the Way in Food Safety in Sunshine State by Using

Pasteurized Shell Eggs to Eliminate Risk of Food-Borne Illness

LANSING, Ill., Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- National Pasteurized Eggs, http://www.safeeggs.com, announced today that The Broken Egg restaurants in Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota, Fla., will now exclusively use its Davidson's Safest Choice Pasteurized Shell Eggs brand for all dishes requiring eggs.

By using Davidson's pasteurized shell eggs, The Broken Egg joins a growing number of U.S. restaurants and food service entities that are converting to pasteurized shell eggs to eliminate the risk of Salmonella enteritidis (SE), the main egg-related Salmonella bacteria. The Broken Egg, which serves nearly 300,000 eggs per year, is the area's first breakfast and lunch restaurant to use 100 percent pasteurized shell eggs in every egg dish. Use of pasteurized shell eggs has skyrocketed in the past year, due to consumer concerns about food safety in wake of food-borne illness outbreaks throughout 2007.

"We have more than 30 egg dishes and five different eggs Benedict selections alone," says Bob Kirscher, managing partner of Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota's popular The Broken Egg restaurants. "We go that extra step by serving pasteurized eggs exclusively to our patrons enabling us to eliminate the risk of salmonella poisoning and providing us with peace of mind knowing that we are doing all we can to keep our guests safe."

While many restaurants use liquid eggs, which also protect against SE, pasteurized shell eggs provide the culinary capabilities chefs require and customer's desire.

"Food safety has always been a top priority at our restaurant," says Kirscher. Since 1985, The Broken Egg, featuring breakfast and lunch have been a longtime fixture in the community and is popular with local residents and tourists, alike.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates 2.3 million eggs contaminated with SE were sold last year, exposing a large number of people to risk of illness. More than 60 million Americans are at risk for severe reactions to egg-related salmonella, including children under 10, pregnant women, those over 50 and those with compromised immune systems. The FDA's Model Food Code recommends using pasteurized eggs in all dishes calling for raw or softly cooked eggs.

Davidson's Safest Choice Pasteurized Shell Eggs undergo a patented pasteurization process that destroys harmful bacteria including SE. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year more than 118,000 egg-related salmonella cases are confirmed, and many more are underreported or misdiagnosed.
