Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22- THE LETHBRIDGE November 13, 1974 IriW to unload rotten eggs Eggs for sale sight unseen OTTAWA (CT) The Cana- dian Kgg Marketing Agency (CKMA) attempted to rid itself ol millions of spoiling eggs this summer by selling them to processors sight un- seen, the special Commons egg inqunv was told Tuesday But Max Rubenstem, presi- dent ol Expoi t Processors Ltd ol Toronto, the country's largest egg processing firm, said the ygcncy WcsS tupped up a federal regulation which can be used to force the agriculture department to inspect all eggs shipped between provinces Mr Rubenstem said he re- membered the regulation .shortly after CEMA called the major egg processors together in Ottawa July 19 to tell them it had 54 million eggs loi sale at prices ranging between 25 and 27 cents a far below normal prices of about 40 cents a dozen But the processors would have to buy the eggs without seeing them. Mr Rubenstem he was told by CEMA marketing manager Ed Smith The processors would not know how old Ihe eggs were, how many the agency had in storage or when processors would again be able to buy eggs "That's where they went Mr. Rubenstein said. WERE SUSPICIOUS The processors bought the eggs because they were worried about having ade- quate supplies But they were suspicious Then Mr. Rubenstein said he remembered the regulation which can be used to require eggs to be graded if they move from province to province. Since most of the surplus CEMA eggs were in Quebec, and they had to be shipped to processing plants in Ontario and other provinces, the proc- essors had federal agriculture department inspectors re- check the eggs It was then that the first of the 28 million eggs bought by CEMA as surplus and left to rot in improper storage were discovered. Mr Rubenstein appealed before the committee' during its third week of hearings as a director of the Canadian Egg and Poultry Council, the organization which represents the country's, egg trade His plants in Ontario and Manitoba process between 50 and 60 per cent of the 46 8 mil- lion pounds of eggs made into powder, .shampoo and other products each year It takes about three dozen eggs to make a pound of powdered eggs Former consumer at fairs minister Herb Gray said it was hard to fault Mr Rubens- tein for forcing the inspection, since CEMA would have "laughed all the way to the bank" if it had managed to sell the eggs to the processors. As a result, however, Mr Rubenstein said he "didn t do too badly He and other processors were able to buy eggs that were not rotten for prices ranging between 25 and 27 cents a dozen. "You fooled Con- seiv.ttive consumer critic James McGrath (St. John's said with a grin REFUSED TO SELL another point. Mr. Rubenstein sard CEMA refus- ed to sell him eggs despite the fact that it was building up surpluses earlier this year He told the committee he arranged a deal to buy about worth of eggs at 36 cents a to be turned into powder in plants in Holland, Germany and England. But CEMA refused to sell them the eggs because the domestic price for the lower-quality eggs was 42 cents a dozen "I guess they were worried I would make a Mr. Rubenstein said But he added that processors know more about egg buying and selling than do the farmers who operate marketing boards and the national marketing agency He said he told CEMA he would buy eggs from it and sell them on export markets when the agency's surplus was building EATON'S CANDY It's time to be stocking up on candies for the coming holiday season Let Eaton's help you in your selection to use now or to put away for the Yuletide holidays.
