HERE’S A THOUGHT that might put you off breakfast: if you were in America, you’d have been advised not to mop up your runny egg yolk with some toast.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued the bizarre advice yesterday as it told consumers to thoroughly cook their eggs – and not to use toast to mop up any leftovers – in the wake of a massive national salmonella outbreak.

Speaking on TV yesterday, FDA head Margaret Hamburg said people could cut their personal risk of contracting salmonella by thoroughly cooking eggs and by avoiding cultivating “runny egg yolks for mopping up with toast”.

If an egg was cooked with a runny yolk, consumers were advised not to eat it.

About 1,300 people have contracted the food poisoning so far in the nationwide outbreak, though the number is expected to increase. The bug has been traced to one of two farms in Iowa, with about 550 million eggs being recalled by their distributors. The two plants share a common feed supplier. The recall could be extended as further farms are examined.

Hamburg also said that the FDA needed to be able to take a more “preventive approach” to food safety issues, rather than the current status quo where it adopted a reactive stance to potential food scares rather than being able to prevent them.

To put the scare in context, Americans consume about 47 billion shell eggs a year, as well as an additional number of egg-based products.

THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION OF IRELAND has confirmed that Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni was brought to hospital overnight after suffering from nausea and vomiting.

In a statement this morning, the FAI said Trapattoni had flown into Ireland on Sunday in advance of tomorrow evening’s glamour friendly against Argentina, but had felt unwell since his arrival.

He had been treated by the FAI’s team doctor, Dr Alan Byrne, who brought the 71-year-old Italian to the Mater Hospital at 3am this morning when he continued to vomit.

It said Trapattoni would undergo tests at the hospital this morning, but is in a stable condition there. Assistant boss Marco Tardelli will take charge of training this morning at Malahide, allowing Trapattoni to rest up before tomorrow night’s game, which is the first international game to be held at the new Aviva Stadium at Lansdowne Road.

The statement said that Trapattoni attributed his illness to shellfish he ate in Italy before he left for Dublin.

Tomorrow night’s game is the first international game to be held at the new Aviva Stadium at Lansdowne Road.
