New York pols push for bills requiring salmonella vaccination for hens after egg recall

By Erin Durkin

Two state pols will introduce bills requiring farmers to vaccinate hens against salmonella, they announced Sunday.

The move comes as thousands of people around the country got sick from salmonella this month, leading to a recall of half a billion eggs from Iowa farms.

The federal Food and Drug Administration responded with new egg safety rules, but they didn't require hens to get salmonella shots.

"Requiring salmonella vaccination should be a no-brainer, and if the FDA is unwilling to take the lead, we should start here in New York," said state Sen. Daniel Squadron (D-Manhattan, Brooklyn), who himself had a brush with salmonella in college.

The 3-Legged Dog Media and Theater Group has a new spring in its step after reaching a deal with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), the landlord for the group's 80 Greenwich St. headquarters, that cancels pending eviction proceedings.
