You Rocked the Vote!

In February, the co-op asked the membership to vote on a proposed amendment to Article V of the co-op’s Articles of Incorporation. The final vote was tallied following a special meeting of the membership on Thursday, February 23rd. The proposed amendment passed by a wide margin, with more than 95% of voters in favor of increasing the limitation on our Class A & B membership stock to 200,000 shares each. A big thank you to all the co-op members who voted in our special election!

Voluntary Egg Recall

Larry Schultz has issued a voluntary recall for a portion of his eggs, following a routine investigation by the MN Department of Health which linked his farm with 5 non-fatal cases of salmonella. We are relieved to report that Linden Hills Co-op HAS NOT received ANY of the affected eggs. We have worked with Larry Schultz for many years and will continue to work with him to address this problem quickly, thoroughly and with transparency. We will continue to monitor this situation closely and will share information as it becomes available.
