Our eggs have always been popular when it comes to foodservice. Many hospitals, long-term care facilities, college and universities, hotels, and restaurant chains are aware of the risk associated with serving large quantities of people unpasteurized eggs. Now – after the largest egg recall in American history –  more everyday consumers are aware of the risk of salmonella in eggs and want to make the safest choice when grocery shopping. Because of this increase in demand Safest Choice has been able to get into a number of new stores throughout the country. This wouldn’t have happened without the help of interested consumers.

Ina Pinkney, the Breakfast Queen of Chicago, is a huge supporter and a great friend of Safest Choice. Recently, she kindly invited us and thirty of our registered dietitian friends to her comfortable and bright restaurant, Ina’s, in the trendy West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. The spread she prepared for our group of dietitians was amazingly delicious. The vegetable Frittata, baked French toast with apples, chicken sausage, fresh fruit, coffee and juice were phenomenal. In addition, Ina served a special dish to showcase Safest Choice eggs. Everyone was served an individual corn arepa topped with black beans, cheese, pico de gallo, and a sunny side up egg.  She chose this recipe because she would only feel comfortable serving an undercooked egg dish with our pasteurized shell Read More >

For several years Albert (Al) Smith has taken an interest in observing Safest Choice’s distribution of the unique product, pasteurized shell eggs.
