About FDA

Total number of egg farms that are required to be compliant with the Egg Rule (September 2010 to December 2011)

Dictionary: Egg farms were required to register under the FDA Egg Rule. All large farms registered by November 1, 2010 will be inspected under the 2010-2011 Egg Assignment. As of November 1, 2010, 608 large egg farms had registered, so that is the total number of egg farms that FDA committed to inspect by December 2011. However, in proceeding with inspections, FDA discovered that several farms were no longer subject to the rule because they had ceased operations or canceled their registrations. FDA visited and performed “washout inspections” of these farms, and these reports are included in the cumulative number of inspectional visits. These “washouts” reduced the final inventory of farms subject to the Egg Rule to 543.
