in response to reader comment: The alternative to regulation

Seems pretty clear when reviewing the science. The larger the farm, the greater the risk factors. So any consumer buying eggs from a fecal farm, i.e. CAFO [Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation], is taking a greater risk and may want to more heavily regulate their egg producer. I understand their very real concern. On the other hand, I won't stand for overregulation of my small egg producer or other barriers to market entry that limit my choices and increase my risk. So how about two sets of rules: one for the folks that buy from CAFOs and another for folks who buy their eggs from a local, reputable farmer? The first set of regs can be written by the lobbyists at UEP and enforced by the USDA's FSIS, and the second set can be written by the smaller producers and their consumers and be none of the UEP and USDA's business.
