    To some shoppers, the meaning of the "USDA Grade A" shield on egg cartons seems pretty obvious.

    The mark on the carton just means that the U.S. Department of Agriculture had a "grader" at an egg-packing facility who checked the eggs' size and color and made sure the shells weren't cracked, a USDA official said. Consumers "misunderstand" the shield, he said.

    Our FDA needs a complete overhaul. JMHO. I was thinking that lately, not in response to your post DK :)

    Thank you for bringing the article here!
