More eggs recalled over salmonella fears

EGGS RECALLMore eggs have been pulled from supermarket shelves this Wednesday due to possible salmonella contamination.

CR and M Ash and Sons recalled cartons of 12 eggs from IGA’s, independent stores, bakeries and butchers in NSW.

The eggs recalled had the Best Before dates on the cartons on 26 April 2019 or 3 May 2019. These are stamped with AF58 at the start of the code.

Last Friday, the first batch of eggs were recalled from Coles and Woolies, due to possible salmonella contamination. NSW Food Authority has advised consumers not to consume the eggs and immediately dispose them or return them for a full refund. A receipt isn’t required for returning the recalled eggs.

The NSW Department of Primary Industries and Local Land Services are working together to deal with the problem of salmonella in eggs in NSW. It said in a statement that “all other eggs are safe to eat, provided people exercise the usual safe food handling precautions for eggs and other special care foods such as washing your hands and avoiding raw egg products particularly if you are a vulnerable population such as the immune compromised, under two or over 70 years of age or pregnant.”

Consumers are advise to cook eggs thoroughly, until the egg whites are completely firm and yolk begins to thicken. Salmonellosis symptoms include fever, headache, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Those who are affected may start to feel sick after six to 72 hours after the contaminated food is eaten and usually lasts for four to seven days but can continue for much longer.
