Soybean allergy

I’m having an allergic reaction to eggs and chicken that are feed soybean. This should be on labels for people like me. Both my pancreatic ducts enlarge and I suffer for days from all the bile and hormones that get into my system. I can’t eat solids until my pancreas calms down. Please add a label to soy feed chickens and the eggs they produce. Thank you

Hard cooked eggs in the oven

Our educators across the state have been asked about the new way to cook eggs that is all over Facebook and Internet. Mini muffin pans, lay eggs on and bake at 325 for 30 minutes. My concern was them blowing up in the oven and the food safety. What do we tell them?
