In a year that saw a massive number of food recalls, 2010 may go down as the year of the egg.

Two Iowa egg farms in August recalled more than a half-billion eggs after salmonella contamination sickened more than 2,400 people across the country. The salmonella was tracked to feed used at the farms. Authorities said it was the largest outbreak of salmonella enteritidus since records started being kept in the 1970s to track such outbreaks.
