Schwarzenegger: Eat Local, California Eggs are Safe
Last month's major recall of Iowa-produced eggs has consumers wary of just about all eggs found on grocery store shelves. That's why Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (or SchwarzenEGGer -- we couldn't resist) today dropped by a Sacramento supermarket to assure Californians that eggs from the Golden State are a-okay.
"For over a decade, California has implemented the California Egg Quality Assurance Program to ensure that eggs produced in California are safe for consumers," the Governor's Office said in a statement.
