Another Egg Recall After Salmonella Fears
Food authorities have recalled another brand of eggs sold in supermarkets due to a potential salmonella contamination.
The CR and M Ash and Sons brand eggs that have been recalled are sold in IGA stores, independent stores, bakeries and butchers across NSW.
The recalls affects various cartons of 12 eggs, with a best before date of 26 April and May 3.
The products affected are:
- Blue Mountains Free Range Eggs 700g,
- Blue Mountains Cage Free Eggs 700g,
- Fresh Eggs From My Farm 800g,
- Farm Fresh Eggs 600g, 700g, 800g.
NSW Food Authority said anyone who bought these products should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The Authority also warned anyone who has consumed the eggs and is concerned about their health should seek medical advice.
Ash and Sons declined to comment.
In a statement, Rowan McMonnies, Australian Eggs Managing Director, said Australian eggs was "working closely" with the company to identify supply chain links between farms after salmonella was identified in other egg products last week.
"This latest farm was firmly on our radar because it is close to farms in which salmonella has recently been detected," he said.
"The owners undertook voluntary testing for SE and the farm is now under quarantine."
This is the second egg recall in as many weeks, with various Loddon Valley egg products recalled over salmonella fears.
