Jamie Oliver gets egg on his face!

It had to happen. Just as soon as Jamie Oliver's campaign to eliminate the buying of battery eggs and stimulate interest in free range eggs gets underway, something happens. One of his restaurants is caught out serving up battery eggs. A group of farmers spotted the rogue eggs whilst having dinner at Fifteen Cornwall in Watergate Bay, Cornwall. A restaurant spokesman said it had been an embarrassing mistake and admitted Mr Oliver was very angry.

Some of the farmers were battery egg producers, who probably thought it would be a good wheeze dumping a load of chicken **** onto the campaigning chef. I'd think they would be better off thinking about the possibilities of switching to free range production, because if Mr. Oliver persuades the supermarkets to stock such eggs in large quantities they may be left behind.
