Iowa egg inspections resume

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Inspections of egg handlers and egg handling facilities are making a return.

They started Wednesday after safety precautions brought an end to the inspections last spring. The reason was the Avian flu outbreak.

The illness impacted 18 counties. Almost 32 million birds had to be destroyed.

Agriculture officials say the inspectors have undergone additional training on biosecurity for visiting livestock and poultry farms.
