Experts say vaccines could have prevented egg recall

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Experts say low-cost vaccines could have helped prevent the kind of salmonella outbreak that led to the recent egg recalls.

Apparently those vaccines aren't given to half of the nation's egg-laying hens.

Iowa State University poultry veterinarian Darrell Trampel predicts more producers will begin vaccinating their flocks because of the recent outbreak.

But a veterinarian with one of the vaccine makers warns the vaccines won't always work if conditions at egg farms are very unclean.
