Salmonella contamination in organic egg causes recall in Australia

Consumers in NSW and Victoria have been warned not to eat the latest batch of eggs that have been recalled over possible salmonella contamination. A Salmonella enteritidis outbreak in which 149 people have fallen ill since it was first reported in Australia in May of 2018. The NSW Food Authority said that Synergy Produce has recalled packs of Southern Highland Organic Eggs with best before dates up to and including May 9. Some brands of eggs were last month recalled across NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, and South Australia after salmonella was detected at Victoria’s Bridgewater Poultry. "Consumers should not eat this product. Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund," said the authority. The warning is the third major recall of tainted egg products this year, following separate salmonella concerns for other egg suppliers in February and March, according to local media. @ https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/apr/07/egg-recall-health-authorities-issue-warning-over-fears-of-salmonella" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/apr/07/egg-recall-health-authorities-issue-warning-over-fears-of-salmonella
