Guess How Many Food Recalls There Were in 2010?

It was a bumpy year for the FDA. In addition to the largest egg recall in history, there were recalls on lettuce, pepper, and even pet food. Can you guess how many recalls there were in total?

237!

The good news is that due to the massive egg recall, the FDA finally cracked down on egg producers. Food Safety News:

Under the new egg rule, which went into effect on July 9, 2010, egg producers for the first time faced some specific requirements from FDA. It was because it did not earlier have such specific rules or standards that FDA rarely inspected egg farms.

Better late than never, right?
