Salmonella Outbreak: Eggs Recalled After Dozens Of People Get Sick
The eggs have been sold in NSW only.
Eggs across Sydney are being recalled after 23 cases of salmonella enteritidis have been confirmed by the New South Wales Food Authority.
The outbreak has led egg supplier Eggz on the Run to voluntarily recall some of their products that are sold under the Glendenning Farm brand.
Customers have been warned by the company not to consume whole shell eggs sold in NSW with the best before dates eight, 10 15, 17, 22, 24 or 29 September or October 1.
The eggs are said to have been sold in cartons and bulk trays in independent supermarkets and retailers in NSW only.
Customers have bee advised to throw the eggs away or return them to their place of purchase where they will be given a full refund.
Consumers are also advised to watch for the symptoms of salmonella including fever, headache, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting.
These typically start between six and 72 hours after contaminated produce is eaten and can last for up to seven days.
In July this year, there was a huge recall on frozen vegetables by major supermarkets Woolworths, Aldi and IGA after a possible Listeria outbreak. The products that were recalled included vegetables from Bell Farms, Black and Gold brand and Market Fare brands. The products originated in Belgium and Hungry.
The recall followed the deaths of six people in early 2018 after they ate listeria-contaminated rock melon.
If you are concerned about your health after consuming eggs the NSW Food Authority urges you should seek medical advice.
