    On Texting – This generation is going to grow up not knowing how to be social and personal...when I go to my daughter's house, the older kids (12 & 14) always have that cell phone w texting or ipad in their hands! They don't know how to pick up the phone and call and have a conversation and, as someone said, even write a letter or note...It is going to be interesting – very impersonal.

    When are the CNN cameras going inside the hatcheries to show us how are eggs are produced? Didn't see a SINGLE CHICKEN roaming around the "Farm" pecking the ground for seeds or worms.

    First on the matter of these teens on the text don't blame them. There only doing what there parents let them do, My son didn't get a phone until he was able to pay for it him self, we the parents are our own worst enemy. Why should I pay for something that I don't use and why should I pay for a phone just because other parents give there child a phone that is how this whole peer pressure starts and bullying starts. So if there text ting to much I say look in the mirror what you see is the person who started the problem. Kids need to learn responsibility and it starts with us the parents be firm don't give in. Set the rules and stick to them even when your so busy in your daily routine.

    You ran the teen texting story months ago and now you're just repeating it. There is no news here. Prior to texting, teens used instant messaging. Before that they were emailing and if you go back to when I was a teen, parents were concerned because teens spent all of their time on the phone. Teens are just communicating using the latest technology.

    @ texting too much...I believe that teens should not text at school...we shool cut texting and go back to basics... example, write a letter once and awhile...and even send an email...Or better yet, take the phones all together

    Good morning. This is my first time on your site and not very helpful. I have four young children and we cook 14 eggs for our one breakfast. I came to your site to see if our eggs are involved and don't see your list. Melanie from Panama City, FL

    Actually, I blame the officials who are supposed to be watching these egg companies. They should be accountable for not doing their jobs.

    Cook the eggs to kill salmonella? Let's see?, Cook the eggs and have the salmonella in the cook ware?

    What everyone else is saying: Cook the eggs properly and stop blowing things out of proportion.

    I will eat eggs if they are not part of the recall. Other than that, I will call it in. It is sad that egg companies only care about the mighty dollar and not the health of Americans. I suggest that instead of sending them back to the stores we should contact the gov and let them know where it came from. That would give them an idea to where the breakout began.

    In the wake of this latest recall, I can't help but get sick to my stomach from all of these supposed agencies that are in place to protect us and oversee industry. From the mining disaster, to the oil disaster and now the egg disaster. Where are these people when the "red flags" went up long before these tragedies? Why does it take a horrific incident to get any attention? How many lives will be impacted before something preventative is done? I am just soooo tired of hearing from these people after the fact. We seem to be a country of agencies that do nothing until a crisis is upon us!!!

    I eat eggs every morning either at home or out. Had a first happen Saturday morning, I cracked one open and it did not want to drop out of the shell. I thought "I probably shouldn't eat that" but I did.
    This outbreak seems to be concentrated in the west, so I am not too worried being on the east coast.

    I will not eat or serve any eggs at this time. I believe the list of recalled eggs will continue to grow. Better to be safe than sorry.

    as wide spread as this egg scare seems to be, why is this company not being held to the same scrutiny and openness as BP oil and demands of financial suport for those who have been victumized

    I watched the report on the tainted 1/2 BILLION eggs as I was eating a fried egg from one of my daughter's two chickens. Vegetarian, organic, delicious eggs...FRESH AND LOCAL from very happy well-fed chickens. My advice is for egg eaters to head to the local farmers' market and see what they offer.

    Eggs in my belly too, all is well.

    People wouldn't get sick if the eggs were cooked correctly. Cooking kills any salmonella.

    What are "prepackaged" eggs? Eggs packaged before they are laid?

    I will eat eggs. But I am looking into organic or maybe prepackaged.

    What is breakfast without eggs? Different type of foods get recalled and problem gets fixed and we go back to eating the same foods. I could just start raising my own live stock and plant a garden hmm NOT!!

    Good Morning CNN

    The US produces 75 billion eggs a year and the recall affects 500 million. That's what? Less than one percentage? If the producing company broke the law producing the eggs they should be investigated and charged if warranted. They should be charged for hiring illegal aliens and their business seized by the government.

    The egg recall issue is overblown. As long as the eggs are cooked right. Ill eat my eggs.
