Egg recall: DeCoster-linked farm releases contaminated eggs. Again.

Egg recall this past week involves megafarmer Jack DeCoster, whose farm was part of this summer's huge 550 million egg recall.

Peter DeCoster's claim of contaminated food is a red herring, he said.

"There was negligence hand over fist in this situation."
