Michael Pollan Talks Bad Eggs (Video)
Michael Pollan talked to CNN about the half-billion egg recall (yes, it's now a half-billion!), which he believes happened due to fragmented food industry regulation. He discusses his own egg-purchasing habits, like buying eggs at the farmers market and paying more for them.
